DEXTER Blackstock has been hitting the net all season - so he should have no problem kicking off a new web radio station.

Blackstock is one of several QPR players who will help to launch A-Star radio - the latest stage of the scheme set up by Rangers defender Fitz Hall and Fulham's Andy Johnson.

A-Star was established 18 months ago to help youngsters realise their talent instead of turning to crime and several footballers will be contributing to the internet station that begins broadcasting on Sunday.

Hall told the Times: "It'll be mostly music, with myself and other players doing some interviews and chatting to kids, but I'm sure a few of the boys will do a bit of DJing as well.

"Mikele Leigertwood is a bit of a DJ and Rowan Vine fancies himself as an MC, so maybe there's a bit of talent at QPR that hasn't been spotted yet!

"We believe there are stars in the street who don't get seen or heard and hopefully we can encourage them."

Hall also organised a series of A-Star roadshows in London last year, including one at Westway Sports Centre, and further events will be held this summer.

The station will be launched at 6pm at The Suite recording studios (previously known as Utopia) in Primrose Hill.
