Joe Manganiello Exposes Himself as a Hopeless Romantic as Our Guest DJ

Written by

Joe Manganiello put together a swoon-worthy, love-themed set of songs for his stint as a Guest DJ at KCRW and proved himself to be quite the romantic. Whoever the girl is that he talks about in these songs is a very lucky lady!

He tells some titillating stories about a newfound love, dedicates a song to his favorite musician – and friend – DJ Z-Trip, and explains how music brought him back to his creative self when he lost his way. Here’s a snippet:

I knew Joe was a big music fan because he tweets “Songs of the Day” on a regular basis that are all across the musical map.

One of the other songs he highlights in his set is an acoustic version of “Back to Back” by UK band Wolf Gang. He used it to cinch a key romantic moment and, after hearing it, you’ll understand why. It’s a rare gem:

Joe stars in True Blood and the upcoming Steven Soderbergh film Magic Mike.

Editor’s Note: Entertainment Weekly has compiled a Spotify playlist of song picks from all the True Blood actors who have appeared on the show.
