Pulp frontman JARVIS COCKER struggled with the decision to become a radio Dj as he didn't want to follow in his father's footsteps.

The Disco 2000 hitmaker reveals his choice to become a radio presenter like his dad was not one he considered lightly.

He tells British newspaper The Guardian, "I'd always fought against radio presenting really, because my father was a radio Dj in Australia. He's just recently retired.

"And I kind of didn't want to follow in his footsteps. But I suppose, as we all find as we become older, to some extent we do all become our parents."

The singer hosts a show called Jarvis Cocker's Sunday Service on Britain's BBC Radio 6 Music.
