BBC 6 Music

The First Time With...Roger Waters airs at 1pm UK time today (Sunday, July 24th) on the UK's BBC Radio 6 Music.

In this one hour long programme, Roger talks about a youth obsessed with blues, jazz and R&B, and his early songwriting influences like Hoagy Carmichael, Bob Dylan and John Lennon. He looks back at his relationship with his childhood friend Syd Barrett, who would join the Pink Floyd in 1965. He recalls the post-Syd Floyd, the creation of legendary albums like The Dark Side Of The Moon and his uneasy relationship with the fame that followed. Roger also focuses on The Wall - the 1979 concept album inspired by that relationship - and how he revisited the album in 2010 for his epic record breaking Roger Waters: The Wall tour, which also inspired a live album and a feature movie. He also talks about his famously acrimonious split from Pink Floyd, and more positively his new material.

BBC6 Music can be heard in much of Europe, online at, and the show itself can be heard via the BBC's iPlayer service following broadcast. Listeners worldwide may also be able to tune in via the TuneIn app for Apple/Android devices.
