John Bonham radio documentary attracts John Paul Jones for live interview

It looks like Jimmy Page isn't the only Led Zeppelin member drawing attention to the BBC 6 Music radio special on John Bonham to be broadcast Monday afternoon.

Tight But Loose's news page online says a live interview is to take place this morning with John Paul Jones. As the other half of Led Zeppelin's rhythm section for 12 years, Jones got to know Bonham in a way that nobody else ever did.

Page made a live guest appearance with presenter Lauren Laverne on BBC 6 Music last Tuesday morning, commenting about Bonham and promoting the special, which airs at 3 p.m. BST on the terrestrial radio station and also streaming online at the same time.

The radio special is to be hosted by Dave Grohl, an admirer of Bonham's who is currently the drummer for Them Crooked Vultures, also with Jones.

Tight But Loose did not report the time of Jones's interview except to say that it would take place live air during Shaun Keaveny's program, which begins at 7 a.m. (Update: The pre-recorded interview aired in two parts, during both the 7:00 and 9:00 hours.) Both interviews from Page and Jones are also to be repeated a few hours later, at 12:30 a.m.
