American singer and songwriter Billie Eilish Unveils a brand new Apple Music Show '‘me & dad radio’ on Apple Music
Grammy award-winning Billie Eilish has announced a brand new Apple Music show, ‘me & dad radio,’ featuring music and conversations with her Dad, Patrick O’Connell. "My dad and I have been putting each other on to music since I can remember, and we want to share it with you,” Billie tells Apple Music.
Billie and Patrick joined Apple Music’s Zane Lowe earlier today on his show to chat about the origin of ‘me & dad radio’. “My dad and I have had this relationship over the years of sharing music with each other. My dad has shown me some of my favorite songs in the world and I’ve shown him songs that he loves and adores also,” Billie told Zane. Patrick added: “that was the genesis of this whole show — I’ll play you a bunch of stuff you don’t know that I think is great."
Each episode will feature selections by both Billie and Patrick, spanning decades and genres, from the popular and well known, to the rare and obscure. The full playlists from each episode will be available to stream on Apple Music.
