Not sure if this has been posted here already, but the four part radio documentary "The Thrill of it All" with Jarvis Cocker is currently available on the BBC Radio 6 webpage:

Following Brian Eno's John Peel Lecture, another chance to hear Jarvis Cocker's celebration of Brian's former band Roxy Music.

Evolving from the late-60s art-rock movement, Roxy Music epitomized fashion, glamour and innovative music. Through the 70s and 80s, the band released a string of ground-breaking albums, culminating with the 1982 classic Avalon. Programme one begins with the band emerging in 1972, making an instant visual and musical impact. Dressed in bizarre, yet stylish costumes, the group played a defiantly experimental variation of art rock with infectious pop hooks. The creative tension between Bryan Ferry and Brian Eno pulled the band in separate directions but resulted in two ground-breaking albums.

First broadcast on BBC Radio 2.

My pleasure :D

Btw you can download them with a freeware called get_iplayer. (unfortunately the interface is not very userfriendly.)
