Jarvis Cocker - Jarvis Cocker Taking Year-long Break From Bbc Radio Show

British rocker Jarvis Cocker is set to embark on a year-long hiatus from his Bbc radio show in the hopes of keeping the eclectic programme fresh and exciting.

The Pulp frontman has been hosting Jarvis Cocker's Sunday Service on Bbc Radio 6 Music for the past three years, but he will temporarily bow out following his show this weekend (29Dec13).

Comparing his break to crop rotation on a farm, he tells Britain's Radio Times magazine, "Crop rotation has long been recognised as a way of preserving the fertility of the soil. Every now and again, a field has to be left fallow for a year in order to make sure it has time to recover. In 2014 I will be that field. T'is done with the firm conviction that it will lead to a stronger and more vigorous Sunday Service when I return to 6 Music's pastures."

However, the Common People hitmaker won't be completely absent from the Bbc airwaves - he reveals he will be popping up on Bbc Radio 6 Music now and again over 2014 as he juggles his new job as Editor-at-Large at book publishers Faber and Faber. His first release, a book on the history of British folk clubs, is set for publication in April (14).
