Influencer Spotlights

Introducing BBC’s Weekly “Now Playing @6Music” Collaborative Playlists

BBC 6 Music

We are so excited to have BBC's "Now Playing @6Music as an Rdio Influencer. Every week they'll be featuring a playlist and asking for your submissions. First up is Franz Ferdinand!

Where were you when you first heard the band's heartbeat takeover track, “Take Me Out”? Or how about the sultry single, The Dark of the Matinee? Now it’s your turn to send Alex Kapranos, Franz Ferdinand’s lead vocalist, your favourites by adding them to his #Franz6Music playlist on Rdio. Alex will be acting as DJ on Sunday’s Now Playing@6Music and airing the songs you share. He’s looking for variety, so upload your top tracks – be it a hit, b-side, rarity or bands that are possible influences like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Roxy Music or Blur? Know of any artists they’ve collaborated with or covered? Perhaps LCD Soundsystem, Pulp, David Bowie or Hot Chip? Hurry, you only have until Sunday to add tracks here.

Tune in on Sunday to BBC 6 Music’s prime time radio show to hear the playlist. Now Playing @6Music airs a new playlist curated by an artist or music expert every week. Start following their profile on Rdio now to help build playlists and get a new way of interacting with the bands you care about. Also keep an ear out for Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action, Franz Ferdinand’s fourth album, due out later this month.
