I can’t even remember how I discovered BBC6 Sunday Service with Jarvis Cocker. But what really hooked me was the fact that filling in for Jarvis was…you guessed it, Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age. And the songs he chose made me so happy I thought my heart would burst.
He explained that so many people have not heard these songs, and “we’re gonna change that right now.”
Since the audio is no longer available, I happened to make a playlist of the program, just for you. A lot of the songs are punk and bluesy, so I thought October would be a great month to set it up here.

I mainly wanted to write a Homme post because I wanted to use this screencap from a magazine.
As an added bonus, let me tell you that if you ever want to find some new music to delve into, check out the BBC6 Radio’s Playlist section. Totally awesome.
