Sex Pistols rocker John Lydon and Primal Scream's Bobby Gillespie are among the stars who have signed up to host a series of radio shows in Britain over the summer (13).

The two musicians will be among a number of famous faces who will take over Bbc 6 Music's Sunday Service slot from Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker while he takes a summer (13) break.

Radiohead bassist Colin Greenwood will also be among those sharing their favourite records with listeners on the airwaves throughout June (13) and July (13).

Gillespie says of his new radio gig, "It's so important to get people back into record stores discovering new music, so I'm looking forward to spending a few hours on 6 Music playing new stuff from the likes of Savages, Deerhunter, Nick Cave, Parquet Courts, My Bloody Valentine, Kurt Vile and Allah Las."
