PlayStation 2 has teamed up with Xfm and leading producer Eddy Temple Morris to create a truly unique weekly post clubland show designed to provoke, inspire and stimulate. Set to transmit between midnight and 1am on Sunday, the show kick starts in late January and will run throughout the year.

The Third Place will layer the best in chilled out atmospheric grooves with choice samples of the week's entertainment highlights all in a blissful uninterrupted hour. What better way to wind down after a big weekend?

Carl Christopher, Sponsorship Manager at Sony Computer Entertainment UK, explains how the connection between Xfm and PlayStation 2 evolved: "Xfm is a natural partner for our vision of emotive and alternative radio. We intend to champion new ways of presentation and add a progressive radio experience. "

The Third Place will be produced by Xfm's Eddy Temple Morris, responsible for The Remix, 'where rock meets dance' making Eddy the ideal man to bring together the eclectic mix that will make up The Third Place's content.

Andy Carr, Xfm sales manager, commented: "PS2 and their overall concept of the Third Place as a parallel universe of entertainment and experience offered both a challenge, and ideal partner, in the production and delivery of a true multi-platform solution. The Third Place will exist on air, on line and on page and take consumers far beyond the normal relationship between media channel and commercial partner."

No guidelines, maps or rules exist for the Third Place and in melding together the week's news with the latest sounds the show will fuse them seamlessly together to create a unique experience for the audience, an audio journey to the Third Place of the listener's choosing.
