Patrick Carney has landed his own radio show.

"I've wanted to do a DJ gig like this for a while now and am looking forward to being on air"

The Black Keys drummer will front a weekly series, called Serious Boredom, on U.S. network SiriusXMU and introduce listeners into his favourite indie artists.

Excited Carney says, "I've wanted to do a DJ gig like this for a while now and am looking forward to being on air".

And executive Scott Greenstein can't wait to add Carney to the company's roster.

He tells NME.com, "When an influential artist like Patrick Carney gets behind the mic and invites listeners for an inside look into his inspirations and personal favourites, it's a special, must-hear moment for our subscribers. And we know Patrick Carney's Serious Boredom will be anything but".

Carney isn't the first artist to host their own radio programme - rockers Dave Grohl and Eddie Vedder have also earned similar deals.
