Thanks to everybody who voted for Jarvis in the Sony Rising Star Awards. We’re very pleased to announce that he won!
His win will hopefully strengthen the case against closing BBC 6 Music (BBC bosses had previously discussed the possibility of closing the station due to cost cuts).
Of the possible closure he said: “6 Music is never going to be the biggest station in the U.K. but it would be devastating if it was to close. 6 Music isn’t going to change the world – it just wants to make it a bit nicer.”
Jarvis’ Sunday Service show is broadcast on BBC 6Music at 3:30pm every Sunday.
Jarvis Cocker’s BBC 6Music radio show has been nominated for Sony’s DAB Rising Star Award.
