    This is Shaun's last week and it's going to be sad to have him go.

    Definitely the best all-round show on the station.

    Most other shows are purely for either music nerds (of which I'm one), or just hearing a load of anthems, but Shaun's humour was second-to-none and when that's mixed with both of the above it makes for delightful listening.

    I do wonder why he's decided to leave, though.

    The biggest moment of Friday's show was at the end when it was revealed that he was pushed rather than jumped.

    A very poor decision by the powers that be, and it really feels like something essential has now been lost to 6 Music.

    At the end of the show when he was doing his goodbyes and salutations he revealed that he was 'told he would no longer be doing this' .

    His final playlist also contained a few hints as to how he felt.
