Radio shuffling

Phil Jupitus is leaving the 6Music breakfast show, having helmed the opening programme each day since the channel was born five years ago. He's going to be replaced by Sean Keaveny, which wouldn't have been our first choice.

In even odder 6Music news, the Queens of Noize late-night Saturday show is being given an afternoon slot - presumably so that a larger audience can enjoy ignoring it. And Elbow's Guy Garvey is going to present a programme on Sunday evenings. It's not known what the world has done to piss the controller Lesley Douglas off quite so much.

Meanwhile, Richard Bacon is leaving Xfm again, this time to have a crack at doing more speech for Radio 5 Live.
