BBC 6 Music with Phil and Phill
I have gotten really lucky with 2 BBC DJs who are spinning my record a bunch and had me on their breakfast show live yesterday. Phill Jupitus and Phil Wilding.
I spent the week leading up to my radio appearance being told by every British person I encountered to be prepared to roll with the punch lines and have a good sense of humor. They went easy on me. It was very relaxed. These guys were so cool. I wish I could hang out with them in real life. They were so laid back and genuinely enjoying themselves. I love seeing that in people. You can just tell that they are already somewhere that theyâ€™ve wanted to get to in life. People like that are so much more capable of tuning in, absorbing their environment, being kindâ€¦
You can listen to the show online. My part is the last 30 minutes.
They asked me to bring something to play from someone I admire. So I made them a mix CD with indie Texas artists that I guessed to be up their alley. They played Seasons by Kevin Ryan yesterday. Below is the track list
From what I gather, 6 Music is a digital channel that is available online and through cable TV. It’s the most listened to show where they can choose whatever they want to play.
