Queens Of The Stone Age’s Josh Homme To Read cBeebies Bedtime Story
Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme is to read a Bedtime Story on the BBC’s cBeebies channel, on October 6.
The singer will read Zog, by Julia Donaldson, illustrated by Axel Scheffler. The Bedtime Story slot is the final program on cBeebies’ daily schedule, usually coming on at 6.50pm – after bath time, before bedtime proper, in our house anyway.
Homme told NME that he’s recorded two further stories, to be broadcast at later dates.
Homme follows in the footsteps of some similarly high-profile cBeebies storytellers, including Hollywood actors Tom Hardy and Chris Evans, athlete Jessica Ennis-Hill, Knight Rider star David Hasselhoff, and astronaut Tim Peake.
Course, for some of us, none of this will ever eclipse Rik Mayall doing George’s Marvellous Medicine on Jackanory. But then, some of us are also pretty old, these days.
