Dream Ticket for Shaun Keaveny on 6 Music
Shaun Keaveny is to present a new show for BBC 6 Music.
Keaveny will take over The Dream Ticket on Monday 15 January 2007.
The show broadcasts Mondays to
Thursdays from 10pm to 1am.
Lesley Douglas, Controller, BBC 6 Music, says: "I have long admired Shaun's
work. He is a true radio talent who understands how to connect to listeners -
he plays with the medium in a way which is really exciting.
"His love of music
and his irreverent style make him a natural choice for 6 Music."
The Dream Ticket cherry-picks headline performances and exclusive BBC sessions
from the BBC archives as well as enabling listeners to request classic
recordings or to give live gig reviews from around the country.
Shaun Keaveny says: "I have, like most sane broadcasters, always dreamed of
eventually working for what is now, more than ever, the finest broadcasting
institution in the world.
"6 Music has long been a bastion of the best new
music, and curator of the spirit of John Peel, so for a music lover, to use an
hilarious pun, it's the dream ticket."

show on London's XFM. He helped to secure a 2006 Sony Gold Award for XFM's
Rock School, co-presenting with Lauren Laverne.
Alongside his numerous live DJ appearances, this year saw him present the main
stage at the 02 Wireless Festival in Hyde Park.

He is a regular pundit for ITV1, ITV2, Channel 4 and Five; the
current narrator for E4's Stop Treating Me Like a Kid, Superheroes for Sky One
