“As a music lover, mixtape obsessive and long-time 6 Music fan I couldn’t be more chuffed to be asked to sit in for Guy on his hiatus,” Murphy said.
“His show has been a constant companion for me and my family on Sunday afternoons for many years now, and it will be an honour to pick the tunes in that slot for a while. 6 Music is the best radio station in the world and I look forward to becoming a temporary houseguest!”
“I am taking a couple of months off to concentrate on the final stages of Elbow’s next record,” Garvey added to explain his absence.
“Murphy is a bit too good actually, I’ve heard him before and he knows his onions. I obviously have to watch my back, but he’s nowhere near as good looking as me so I’ll win on that front.”
“We’re delighted Cillian will be joining 6 Music for the next few months,” continued 6 Music Head Paul Rodgers.
“His music selections are always interesting and I think listeners will love hearing him on 6 Music on Sunday afternoons.”
Sounds like the perfect way to (flat) cap off the weekend this spring.
