my name is drake and thank you for your time

Along with today’s announcement that Zane Lowe’s first Beats 1 interview will be with Eminem, a New York Times profile on the DJ revealed the titles and hosts for other shows on Apple’s upcoming music streaming service.

As you might expect, Apple’s own Dr. Dre will be hosting a show of his own called “The Pharmacy.” Rapper Drake, who appeared on stage at the Apple Music announcement, will also have a show on the streaming radio service.

Singer Elton John will host “The Elton John Rocket Hour,” and Pharrell Williams, who will launch his new single exclusively on Apple Music later this month, will take on hosting duties as well. Other hosts of unnamed shows will include St. Vincent, Disclosure, Josh Homme and actor & rapper Jaden Smith.

There’s no word on whether Beats co-founder and music industry titan Jimmy Iovine will also host a show, but it seems he’s focusing more on the corporate side of things for now. Also unlikely to host a show, Taylor Swift, who publicly criticized Apple’s plans to withhold payments from record labels during a free trial period, only to have the company change its policy later that night. Today Swift announced that she would allow her latest album to stream on the service as a result of the change.
