The Shaun Keaveny Show: 10.00pm – 01.00am BBC 6 Music (Mon-Thurs)Be prepared to make friends with new 6 Music host Shaun Keaveny who began touting his ‘Dream Ticket’ to gig fans six weeks ago, encouraging them to climb aboard this most eclectic of radio vehicles to ride shotgun with him as he replays sessions cherry-picked from the BBC archives. Monday night revisits the Kaiser Chief’s Nottingham gig – September 2004 - while Wednesday night’s rare Rolling Stones session from August 1965 celebrates what would have been Brian Jones’ 65th birthday. Live music comes courtesy of The Earlies this Wednesday and across the UK listeners will text in their live gig reviews. Keaveny’s made the show his own with quirky features including: ‘Roadies' Lives’ and ‘Festival Focus’ where this week you can revisit Reading 1992 minus your muddy wellies. Warning: if you make friends with ‘Keavo’ he’ll keep you up into the early hours flexing your texting thumb.
