Ever wanted to sit down and talk about music with the Black Keys? Well, that's probably never going to happen, but you'll get pretty close with Patrick Carney's new radio show. Carney will be hosting "Serious Boredom," a new free-form monthly show on the satellite radio provider's SiriusXMU channel.
"They asked me if I was interested in doing the show," Carney said in a phone interview. "It never really crossed my mind, but I decided I wanted to do it, to give it a shot. I don't have any format. I can play whatever I want. Being able to play stuff that's interesting to Dan (Auerbach) and I and stuff I'm into at the moment. I think it's a cool opportunity."
Carney kicks off the show at 8 p.m. EST Thursday with music he was into in high school, a mix of standard indie rock leavened with Captain Beefheart. Carney hopes to have a theme for each show, airing at 8 on the first Thursday of each month beginning in January, that revolves around a label or a city.
