Terry Hall takes over the Sunday afternoon slot at 6 Music for the whole of February armed with a box of records carefully selected from his personal collection.

As frontman of The Specials, Terry Hall represented a kind of detached, dry kind of cool totally at odds with other pop stars of the time.

After leaving the band at the height of their fame in 1981, he went on to form Fun Boy Three and The Colourfield. He then embarked on a multifarious career that has seen him work with Damon Albarn, Lily Allen, Sinead O"Connor and leap from style to style in a way few artists can - and all the while maintaining this deadpan sense of humour and his own, unique vocal style.

Terry Hall says: "I think it"s a great opportunity for me to share my music with the 6 Music audience. I want to play music that has, and continues to inspire me, songs that have touched me on a personal level and songs that have marked important periods in my life."
