In 2010, Jarvis was given his own Sunday afternoon radio show on BBC 6Music "Jarvis Cocker's Sunday Service". This sedate and low-key two hour show blends music, spoken-word recordings, and interviews with guests as well as promising to "put the boringness back into Sunday". The show is currently on hiatus, with Music/IggyPop filling the timeslot.

Describe Jarvis Cocker here.

Well, alright. Jarvis Branson Cocker originates from Sheffield, South Yorkshire, though he now divides his time between London and Paris, and can best be described as a dryly witty, spindly-legged, tweed-jacketed dabbler in everything related to his passion for the arts. His most well-known and memorable foray has been into the world of music, where his catchy tunes and witty, observational style of lyric writing have garnered praise from critics and fans.
