Jarvis Cocker is to get his own Sunday afternoon radio show on BBC 6 Music from January 10.

The singer, who has previously guest edited the Today programme, will take over from current presenter Stephen Merchant in the New Year, and promises to “fill these hours with as much dodgy opinion, crackpot theories, hare-brained schemes and beautiful, beautiful music as is humanly possible.”

Cocker also says that the afternoon slot between 3.30 and 5.30pm is perfect, describing it as “that weird time when one week’s effectively over and yet the new one’s not yet begun – the ‘limbo-hours’ if you like.”
