No one knows or cares more about radio or can write about it with such wit, love and grace’ – Stephen Fry. Phill Jupitus began his performing career in 1984, when he quit working in a Job Centre to become a ranting poet, quickly rising to prominence supporting such bands as The Style Council and The Housemartins.
While working for indie record label Go! Disc his duties included being press officer for the The Housemartins and directing videos for Billy Bragg and the late Kirsty McColl.
In the evenings Phill’s poetry and compering became so successful he would go to tour with such luminaries as Madness, The Who and Paul Weller.
1995 saw the beginning of Phill’s radio career hosting his own show at BBC Greater London Radio. In 2000 Phill had the honour of playing the first ever record on the BBC’s new dedicated music station 6Music as its inaugural Breakfast DJ.
