I guess that is the definition of having “made it” when you are stuck on the front page of the BBC iPlayer in between the “Great British Bake Off” and “Strictly Come Dancing”.
James live footage of our performance at Maida Vale studios for 6 Music is no longer on the red button but is available until the end of October to view on iPlayer
