Jarvis Cocker calls time on 6 Music show
JARVIS COCKER is ending his BBC Radio 6 Music show after nearly eight years.
The Pulp frontman will step down from the Sunday Service programme at the end of this month. It has been a weekly show since 2010 although Cocker has taken breaks for other projects.
The singer said: ‘It’s not goodbye, it’s just farewell,’ before adding that he would be helming a run of five ‘extra-special shows’ throughout December.
Station head Paul Rodgers said: ‘I’d like to thank Jarvis for an inspirational show.’
He added: ‘Jarvis will always be an important part of the 6 Music family and we are looking forward to him returning to work on new projects with us.’
From January 7 the slot will be filled by Amy Lamé.
