Questlove to Make Pandora Cool Again by Hosting a Weekly Show

As if his late-night drumming exploits and professorship at New York University weren’t keeping him busy enough, Pandora has announced that Questlove is joining the music streaming service in a new dual role. He’ll be hosting a weekly three-hour radio program called Questlove Supreme, set to debut on September 7, which will feature an eclectic mix of playlists and guests every week. (The premiere will feature Maya Rudolph, Kimbra, and Bob Power.) Questlove has also been given the title of a Pandora strategic adviser and artist ambassador. “This is a commitment deeper than any girlfriend I’ve ever had or any diet I’ve tried to stick to,” he told the New York Times. “I want a world in which Drake’s ‘One Dance’ can also live with Frank Zappa’s ‘Uncle Meat’ can live with James Brown’s ‘Talkin’ Loud and Sayin’ Nothing,’ and all stops in between.” We’ll most definitely be alternating between this and Culture Void in the near future.
