Ozzy Osbourne's keyboardist (and son of Yes keyboard legend Rick Wakeman) Adam Wakeman has sent the following note to Blabbermouth.net [which was reposted to e-Prog, and now has landed here... and floating everywhere in cyberspace -ed.]

"If anyone is interested, I am starting a radio show on Total Rock radio in London on Saturday, June 4, and then every first Saturday in the month until further notice. No sticking to playlists and I'll be joined by a different member of my band Headspace each show and playing some of the best rock, metal and prog over the last 30 years (and also a track each show from our Headspace debut album, out in January 2012 [and] currently being mixed by Jens Borgen in Sweden)."

Born March 11, 1974 into a musical family, Adam started playing classical piano at the age of 8. By 17, he had obtained grade 8 from the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music and had recorded the first, of what was to become eight albums with father Rick Wakeman.

Much of the early touring history was with his father Rick and encompassed the U.K., Europe, Russia, South America, the U.S., and Canada varying from the two of them sitting at grand pianos to full scale rock performances with orchestra and choir.

At 24 years of age, Adam won the "Best New Talent" award in America's Keyboard magazine, which saw the beginning of his involvement on the London session scene.

As a highly sought after keyboard player and musical director, Adam's career has seen him tour, write and record with some of the biggest-selling artists in the recording industry. Currently, he is in his eighth year as member of Ozzy Osbourne's band on keyboards and guitar, also having co-written five tracks on the 2010 Grammy-nominated album Scream.
