Bob Dylan will host a weekly music show on XM Satellite Radio, the first time the rock star has had his own radio show.

Dylan will select music for the hour-long show, which will debut in March on XM's deep album rock channel, the station announced Tuesday.

He'll also offer comments on music and other subjects, interview guests and answer e-mail from XM subscribers.

"Songs and music have always inspired me," the 64-year-old Dylan said in a statement. "A lot of my own songs have been played on the radio, but this is the first time I've ever been on the other side of the mic."
