Shaun Keaveny

BBC 6Music Breakfast Host

Synopsis

Shaun starts the day with a recipe of classic and new music, obscure facts, shout-outs, knowingly bad jokes and down-to-earth Lancastrian charm.

Biography

Shaun Keaveny presents BBC 6Music’s breakfast show - a mix of classic and cutting-edge new music, interviews and comedy. Before his move to the BBC Shaun was heard in the mornings at indie music station XFM.

With a fine line in self-deprecation, knowingly bad jokes and affable, down-to-earth charm, Lancastrian Shaun has won a loyal following on air. Away from the radio studio there have been various TV appearances and voice-overs for Channel 4 and Sky, and Shaun has performed standup and danced as Beyoncé for Comic Relief.

Before XFM Shaun had no on-air experience, having previously worked variously at an aluminium parts factory, as a volunteer in a Citizen’s Advice Bureau, and in customer services, before landing his first job in the radio industry as a copywriter for 2-Ten FM in Reading. He has also published a book of obscure facts about the UK titled R2D2 lives in Preston.
