Paul Sylvester, Absolute Radio Content Director, said: “We are delighted that Alex will join the likes of Skin and Ronnie Wood in hosting his own Sunday night show on Absolute Radio. He is a brilliant storyteller, has exquisite taste in music and we are sure the listeners will love his take on music both new and old.”
