Can't wait for that. Hope they've had the bleep button serviced recently.

Good news and Bad news. Bad first, Jarvis leaving his Sunday Spot  . Good news Sweating lunatic Iggy Pop is taking over for the rest of the year in a couple of weeks rockingdude7ee.gif  rockingdude7ee.gif . Should be great. He did a couple of spots over Christmas which were brilliant


Me and Joseph Dock were playing in the kitchen and we had the Sunday Iggy Pop show on. A really varied selection of songs topped off with Mr. Pop educating the listener in his unmistakeable granite-chomping growl as to the background of the artist singing or an anecdote from himself about what particular strikes him about a record. Two great songs he played that were new to me was Destino Negro by a singer from Cape Verde called Cesaria Evora and one called Greenback Dollar by Hoyt Axton. It makes so much difference to a radio show when a DJ is truly passionate about music. I highly recommend this programme. End of dispatch.

Listened to a show on 6Music hosted by Terry Hall the other day. He played a track I'd never heard before called Pyjamarama by Roxy Music. Fucking ace song if you ask me......I know you wont.

Been having quite a retrospective of Roxy Music during the last week, actually.  Great band, simple as a simpleton in Simple Town Dock.

Had 6 on last night and enjoyed 'Round Table' in which Steve Lamaq has musicians in to discuss and critique some current singles. Didn't they have a Round Table programme hosted by Janice Long on Radio 1 in the 80's? Might have remembered the presenter wrong, but great to hear the format again.

Good Liz Kershaw show yesterday. Playing The Cramps and interviewing one of the latter members of The Ramones Richie Ramone. Then when that finished Giles Peterson was playing loads of fantastic and very bizarre Cuban music.

6 Music is just brilliant. Lauren Laverne, Mary Anne Hobbs, Riley, Lamacq. Huey, Gideon Coe, Cerys all worth the licence fee alone and then there are all the others. Ace music, good chat and geuine, i love it

It's never dull is it. No matter what time of day you tune in. I'd say that of the new/ old music I discover for the first time 40% is from 6Music shows and 60% is from the monthly Mojo review section.

Started with Emperor Roscoe on R1 in the 70s and then Kid Jensen for many years after that. I was on it when Lamacq had a listener offering opinions on the programme - 2005 I think.

Thought I must have mentioned it!

Nice touch with the cd's. It's those kind of gestures that you remember isn't it.

Sorry, you'd never heard Pajamarama? It's only the song Bananarama got their name from. And the best, possibly only, great drum solo.

I've seen Roxy Music and Bryan Ferry a few times, just a straight run through the hits but what a run. Recommended

Try Soho Radio online  Peter Paphedies Gary Cowley and Simone Marrie have great shows on there, archive on the website too. Others can be hit and miss but often interesting.

Can't think of a 6music show that I dislike but the one I enjoy the most for original and boundary pushing music is Giles Peterson's Saturday show. Yesterday's was fantastic. An interview with Gabrial Garzon-Montano plus some tracks from his new Jardin album which I will defo be getting. Tracks from the new album by Thundercat and loads of other really good music. He played some great Colombian stuff that had a tribal-chanting hypnotic rhythm. Best episode of the show I have listened to in a while. Here's a link to the playlist and show:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b08gj1cc

Also enjoyed this recent show by by Gemma Cairney celebrating the career of Erykah Badu. Worth a listen by any fan or novice regarding T'Erykah's music. 6 Music alone is worth the licence fee.

Listened to Stuart Maconie's Freakzone the other day and he played a song called Heaps of Sheeps by Robert Wyatt that I'd never had the listening pleasure of before. Ace!

People always talk about Robert Wyatt but I know nothing of his music. Can anybody recommend any albums?
