Jimbo’s Sunday Roast has got some new competition as Jarvis Cocker has been handed a slot on BBC Radio 6! I reckon he has been listening to me and fancied a bit of the action!

Former Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker has joined the BBC 6Music presenting team.

The ‘Common People’ singer takes over the Saturday 3.30-5.30pm slot from January 10, 2010. Stephen Merchant, Kaiser Chiefs, Suggs, La Roux and Supergrass have recently hosted the afternoon show.

“It’s a great honour to be working for the BBC, which I consider to be the greatest broadcaster in the world,” said Cocker.

“Sunday afternoon is my dream slot: that weird time when one week’s effectively over and yet the new one’s not yet begun – the ‘limbo-hours’, if you like.

“It is my intention to fill these hours with as much dodgy opinion, crackpot theories, hare-brained schemes and beautiful, beautiful music as is humanly possible. I can’t wait to get going.”

6Music controller Bob Shennan added: “Jarvis just loves music. He’s an iconic figure so he’s perfect for Sundays on 6.”

Cocker’s previous credits include shows on 6Music, Radio 2 and Radio 4’s Today programme.
