He may be best known for his acting work, but Cillian Murphy is also a big muso and has impeccable taste in music.

The Corkman has presented numerous shows on UK radio station BBC 6 Music over the years, and stood in for Guy Garvey in 2019 with his Cillian Murphy’s Music Mixtape show, which was very popular with listeners.

If you enjoyed his mix of music on that show, you'll be happy to know that he's got a new 6 Music show lined up.

Cillian Murphy's Limited Edition is a 12-part series of two-hour-long episodes that will feature "a personal selection by Cillian of music both old and new, with genres ranging from afrobeat to electronica, jazz, spoken word and poetry and featuring iconic artists including Patti Smith, Iggy Pop, David Bowie and many more."

Unlike the BBC iPlayer (shakes fist), BBC Radio stations are available to Irish listeners - so you won't need to go in search of a an IP proxy to hear it. Not that we condone such activities.

The first show will be broadcast next Monday, October 19th at 12am (midnight) and at the end of each episode, listeners will be able to listen immediately to the next programme, which will be available on BBC Sounds ahead of being broadcast on BBC Radio 6 Music the following Monday.
