For those without a Peel gig to go to over the weekend, why not give BBC 6 Music a try?

Not a phrase I’d normally utter, but this weekend sitting in for Stephen Merchant is our old pal Jarvis Cocker. He’s on from 15:30 to 17:30, Sunday 26th October. Subsequent weeks will feature The Kaiser Chiefs and Cerys Matthews, thus offering further proof to support the ‘law of diminishing returns’.

*Hey there fellow UK residents, don’t forget the clocks went back one hour last night.

• Jarvis Cocker’s Musical Map of Sheffield.
“Former Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker takes you on an intimate tour of Sheffield. In his evocative musical map, Jarvis creates a soundtrack that drives his memories, feelings and observations about his home town. Growing up in a city that was still reeling from the loss of big industry, Jarvis recalls his childhood, surrounded by family, and listening to conversations about love and disappointment. Along the way, he introduces the music of Sheffield legends, including Joe Cocker, Cabaret Voltaire, The Human League and Artery.”

I haven’t checked that these might already be uploaded elsewhere, so I apologise in advance for any possible duplication.
