Didn't catch all of it but there was a cracking interview with Wilco Johnson on 5Live this morning, how he's reached 10 months after being given 10 months to live and refusing Chemotherapy. Focused on the cancer rather than his career but very moving and ultimately uplifting. Lets hope he continues to enjoy the time he has left.

Cheers BB

The 65-year-old, suffering from cancer of the pancreas, told the BBC: “I noticed the symptoms a few months ago - there was this lump in my stomach.

"I treated it by ignoring it and hoping it would go away.

“When I went in for the diagnosis and the doctor told me ‘You’ve got cancer’ it was quite plain it was an inoperable thing, there was nothing they could do.

“We walked out of there and I felt an elation of spirit. You’re walking along and suddenly you’re vividly alive.

"You’re looking at the trees and the sky and everything and it’s just ‘whoah’.

“I am actually a miserable person. I’ve spent most of my life moping in depressions and things, but this has all lifted.”
