Mitch Winehouse will present his show on September 1st
Amy Winehouse's father, Mitch, is to host a radio phone-in for BBC London.
The cab driver is one of a number of guest presenters signed up by the station to co-host the mid-afternoon slot while Danny Baker goes on holiday.
Also lined up are Apprentice contestant Lucinda Ledgerwood, actor Phil Daniels and singer Katie Melua.
Since his daughter's behaviour became the focus of media attention, Mr Winehouse, 57, has increasingly been on hand to explain her actions.
"Mitch has been a regular contributor to BBC London, calling into our phone-in shows, " said the station's assistant editor Justin Kings.
"He always has something worthwhile to say and a good sense of humour.
"Although Mitch's life is extraordinary because of Amy, he's still a London dad and I think our listeners can relate to him in that way, " Mr Kings added.
In a recent interview with BBC Radio 1 Newsbeat Mr Winehouse said that he had come to accept being in the media spotlight.
"I question my own motives sometimes," he said. "Maybe I like the limelight a bit too much."
Mr Winehouse and the other guest presenters will take turns co-hosting the 1500 to 1700 slot with DJ Gary Crowley between 18 August and 12 September.
