My favourite DJ. Like you I don’t always get to listen, but when I do I hear at least two new things every time that spur me on to investigate more.
Back when 6Music first started, he had the 10am slot, and introduced my to countless new bands. I’m thoroughly indebted to him. He had Jim James of My Morning Jacket on playing an acoustic set, and I got called into a meeting just as it started. I emailed the show lamenting this, and his Producer sent me a MiniDisc of the session personally. I was bowled over.
An immensely knowledgable DJ and a lovely man to boot. The world needs more of 'em.
