Midge Ure joins Scale Radio to guest host The Space

British artist Midge Ure is joining Scala Radio to host the evening programme The Space in January.

Midge will bring his musical experience as he curates the atmospheric sounds of ‘The Space’, selecting classically-inspired pieces and sharing anecdotes from his career.

Speaking about the new show, the Vienna singer said: “I think like me, many people are probably quite guilty of spending far too much time looking at screens in 2020 when we’ve been limited of other forms of real-life entertainment or contact.

“It will be the perfect opportunity to relax and unwind from the computer, tablet and mobile phone. I hope as January draws in, you’ll join me in taking a break from the noise in the evenings and just sit back and allow yourself to be carried away by some gorgeous music.”

Scala Radio Music & Content director, Ric Blaxill added: “We break the mould of classical music at Scala Radio, always bringing something new or unexpected to our listeners.

“Midge’s music has transcended both genres and generations, and we’re incredibly pleased to welcome him next month to guest host this series.”

Midge Ure appeared at the Radiodays Europe event in 2018 in the city of Vienna, where after an interview session went on to perform Vienna for a room of radio industry professionals.
