Veteran Spanish star Julio Iglesias no longer listens to the radio, because he prefers to hear music in his "heart and bones".

The 68 year old is Spain's best-selling recording artist of all time, but he admits the only music he will put on are new songs performed by his two sons, singers Julio, Jr. and Enrique.

He says, "I don't listen to music, not even mine. I used to listen to Frank Sinatra but have it all in my head now so I don't listen to music much any more.

"When I have to sing and when Enrique and Julio, Jr. give me their new music, I'll listen but for the rest I have music in my heart and my bones. I don't need to listen to it."
