We love Colin Murray

Its not just me, my OH loves him too.

I think he's joining the elite list of men that the OH wouldn't mind me running off with. Ian Brown, Bobby Gillespie Russell Brand and Lee Gorton, ex-singer from band Alfie being the others - the latter he actually once conspired with Badly Drawn Boy to fix me with/pimp me out to - a bizarre moment in our relationship and a rather name-dropping tale at that.

Anyway back to Colin Murray. I wasn't really aware of him until Glastonbury 2005 coverage and the Primal Scream interview, which is my favourite ever television moment, as I've no doubt mentioned before (now available on youtube). I've heard him a few times more recently on Fighting Talk (OH choice of listening, not mine). But this week, we have been listening to his new late night show on Radio 1 and it is brilliant.

According to an article in the Guardian, he wanted to be moved to what is normally considered the graveyard shift so he would have the freedom to play the music he likes, which is by and large the music I like! There are also lots of silly features for listeners to get involved with.

To borrow, the OH's description of him:

"He is a top man adept as disguising himself as a buffoon"

What more could you want?

One of my bessie mates has met him, and is exceedingly yum irl apparently. Think they may have been in the lifet together at one point as well...

Oh, I'm jealous of that. Although I think he might be a bit too young for me really.

He doesn't do much for me. He needs to stop hanging around with that scottish idiot with a slit for a mouth as well (Edith Bowman).

SandDancer said...

He has stopped hanging around with her though as he is now doing a show on his own.

Natalie said...

About time. She's annoying.

So, I happened to read a bit of your blog earlier. I also read this. Now, with those two things very loosely in my mind, I all of a sudden found at some point later in the day that I was led to remember this video. If you haven't seen it... Go have a good laugh ;)
