Jarvis Cocker Wireless Prom

Jarvis Cocker hosted the BBC’s fourth-annual “Wireless Nights Prom” on Thursday night (9/10) at London’s Royal Albert Hall, which was part of the two month Proms classical music series which have been going for 120 years. Cocker is host of BBC 4’s popular “Wireless Nights” series and brought his idiosyncratic style to this very special event, pitched as “an underwater dream…on a voyage through the night.” Accompanied by the BBC Philharmonic and the Manchester Chamber Choir, Jarvis guided the audience — and radio listeners — on that aquatic dream, telling stories set to compositions by Bach, Wagner, and Debussy. He also sang a few appropriate covers: Echo & The Bunnymen‘s “Ocean Rain,” Tim Buckley‘s “Song To The Siren,” and The Beatles‘ “Good Night.” You can listen to the whole thing over at the BBC.
