Wise Women on the radio
Sharon Horgan is one of BBC Radio 6 Music’s Wise Women taking to the airwaves for Christmas, along with Jodie Whittaker and Beth Ditto.
Across Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day, Jodie Whittaker, Beth Ditto and Sharon Horgan will be curating 6 Music each night from 6pm to 2am, including presenting their very own show which will feature the music that has inspired them, as well as looking back across the past year and ahead to 2018. The Wise Women will also be selecting their favourite 6 Music programming from the archive.
Jodie will host on Christmas Eve, Beth on Christmas Day and Sharon on Boxing Day.
Sharon says: “Last time I DJ’d was at my brother’s wedding. No one was listening. But once I forced everyone to stop having fun they all agreed my playlist was a goodie. Getting to front an evening of music for BBC 6 Music is a ridiculous honour. The only radio I listen to is 6. Morning to night. Weekends and weekdays. It inspires me, makes me laugh and takes me back to the dark little music venues I used to sneak into as a kid. I am the definition of an un-wise woman but that aside I will do my best to try and encapsulate what the station and music have meant to me over the years.”
