Mornings will never be the same again

BBC NEWS | Entertainment | Jupitus leaves 6 Music early show

Bother. I’ve been a regular listener to Phill Jupitus’s breakfast show for years. It was the reason I bought a digital clock radio some years back. Phill manages to make me laugh in the mornings, he plays a nicely eclectic mix of music, and he’s singularly lacking in the hyperactive inanity that typifies the breakfast show DJ on most radio stations. I could hardly believe my ears this morning when I head him talking about “the last couple of weeks of the show”, but it seems my ears were not deceiving me. 6Music is being rearranged. Again. I coped with the removal of the Sunday morning repeat of the 6Music Chart Show[1]. I coped with Tom Robinson being cut from four evenings to two. But taking away my breakfast show?!? The fiends!!!!

I haven’t heard his replacement so far, so I’ll keep an open mind, but he’ll have to be really good to make up for Phill’s departure.

I just hope Phill keeps doing Never Mind the Buzzcocks

[1] A thing of great beauty: it featured albums that had not yet reached the official album chart, and led me to a number of discoveries.
