Howard Jones Starts Eight-Part Radio Series


by Music-News.com Newsdesk

Howard Jones started a new eight-part weekly radio series on the U.K.'s Absolute 80s on Sunday.

At the end of each hour long show, Jones will offer listeners a weekly free downloadable mp3 track, recently recorded at a live and exclusive session at Absolute Radio's studios. Each live track will be accompanied by YouTube video performances for listeners to view and share with their friends.

Listeners will be directed to an online registration form at www.absoluteradio.co.uk where they will receive a weekly confirmation email and link to download the mp3. The performance videos will be hosted in a special Howard Jones Playlist via Absolute Radio's official YouTube channel with links from the Absolute 80s Facebook and Twitter pages.

Jones received positive feedback when he joined Absolute 80s back in 2011 and hosted the weekly radio series Howard Jones Electronic 80s. In 1983, Jones first burst upon the pop music scene with his electronic pop anthem and pioneering synthesizers. He took the mid to late eighties by storm with his high energy gigs and albums Human's Lib and Dream into Action.

"It is a great pleasure to be joining my friends at Absolute 80s again to present another series of shows," says Howard. "I'm really looking forward to sharing my stories and experiences with the listeners and playing some great music."

The Absolute 80s radio series dovetails Jones' 30th Anniversary concerts at London's o2 Shepherd's Bush Empire (Nov 29) and Birmingham o2 Academy (Nov 30). The 30th Anniversary celebrates the release of Howard's debut top ten single New Song (1983-2013).
