Radiohead's Thom Yorke is set to appear on BBC's 'Desert Island Discs'

It has been confirmed that leading man of Radiohead and all-round top artist Thom Yorke has been scheduled to appear on the legendary BBC Radio 4 show ‘DesertIsland Discs’ with Lauren Laverne.

The show has been running since 1942 and has hosted some incredible figures of the modern world as they decide the essentials they would take with them onto a desert island. They get to choose eight pieces of music, a book and a luxury item to take with them onto their sandy finality.

The BBC has confirmed that Radiohead’s Yorke will appear on next Sunday’s episode (22nd September), with host Lauren Laverne welcoming Yorke between 11.15-12.00PM.

The new host, Laverne, took over from previous host Kirst Young in July 2019 after Young had to step down following her Fibromyalgia diagnosis and has since made the show her own all while keeping true to the radio show’s deep traditions and legions of fans.
