Fans of the rock legends that are the Foo Fighters will be excited to hear this.

A special six-part series titled "Foo Fighters Radio" kicks off on Saturday February 27th at 6 p.m. (repeated Sunday night at 9 p.m.) on Radio Nova.

It features former and current band members Dave Grohl, Nate Mendel, Pat Smear, Taylor Hawkins, Chris Shiflett and Rami Jaffee.

Each will take over a segment, offering their personal insights as well as spotlighting artists who influenced their careers, and playing some of their biggest hits.

In each episode, you will also hear the lads chat to their rock star friends and reflect on the creative process behind their new album "Medicine At Midnight".

It is their tenth album release, and it recently earned a nomination for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Dave Grohl and the Foos can't wait to connect with Irish fans.

They said: "We’re going to listen to some music. I’ll tell you some stories… play you some songs that inspired me when I was young … kind of take you from the beginning all the way up to today."

Radio Nova CEO, Kevin Branigan said: "We thought having Bruce Springsteen host his own show was a coup, but Radio Nova has now become THE place the world’s biggest artists come to take over the Irish airwaves.

"This is one hell of a radio show, full of huge hits and will give the Foo fans a chance hear all about the band’s career directly from the members themselves."

Radio Nova broadcasts on FM to Dublin, Kildare, Meath and Wicklow. You can listen to the station nationally on the Nova App, and the Irish Radio Player.

"Foo Fighters Radio" will be available to listeners across Ireland on Nova's FM and digital platforms.

In the first show, drummer Taylor Hawkins takes us inside the "Hawkes Nest". Guests include Dave Navarro and Chris Chaney from Jane’s Addiction.

Taylor also plays this from Pink Floyd, Alanis Morrisette, The Police and ELO.

Catch "Foo Fighters Radio" Saturday nights at 6 p.m. and Sunday nights at 9 p.m. starting February 27th only on Radio Nova.
