Manic Street Preachers frontman James Dean Bradfield will be taking to the airwaves of BBC Radio Wales, but this time as a presenter.
He will present the first of two programmes on BBC Radio Wales from 19:00 - 22:00 GMT on Saturday.
The Blackwood singer-songwriter will cover for Bethan Elfyn, who is on maternity leave.
Listeners are told to "expect the unexpected" and Bradfield said it was a privilege to step into the role.
Bradfield is expected to play many of his favourite tracks from the artists such as Y Niwl, The Afternoons, Trwbador and John Cale.
Bradfield said: "To be able to make a programme where you can play Rush and Orange Juice in the same show is such a privilege."
Many of the tracks will be reminiscent of his early life in and around Blackwood, Newport and Cardiff.
The programme will include be a feature entitled "albums to hear before you pop your clogs".
Producer Darren Broome said Bradfield was a "natural presenter".
"Passionate and engaging, a real treat for anyone who's a fan of music. James took to the role of presenter with total dedication," he added.
"He suggested tracks, picked artists and chose tunes with ease; his love of classic rock comes over so strongly in both programmes."
James Dean Bradfield is on BBC Radio Wales from 19:00 - 22:00 GMT on Saturday, March 24.
