And so we come to Mary Anne Hobbs’ new breakfast show on 6, which I finally got a chance to listen to today. Now here’s how to do it, ladies and gentlemen. I interviewed Mary Anne a few years ago for Word, and we were on the phone for bloody ages, and I didn’t want to hang up. She bubbles over with enthusiasm, like a bottle of cheap but amazing booze, and not in a bland “THIS LANDFILL INDIE SINGLE IS OMG-AMAZING” Fearne Cotton kind of way. When Hobbs dreamily says her in her delicate Northern burr that interviewing someone’s “an absolute pleasure”, or a track that she’s played affects her, it sounds keenly felt.
