by Magnus Shaw He’s the immensely popular host of the biggest breakfast show in the country; he anchors a highly-rated Friday evening TV magazine show; he’s very famous and is firing up the Beeb’s coverage of Glastonbury 2013. He’s Chris Evans and his role as introducer of the Somerset bonanza tells us much about the state of the festival.
I’m a big fan of the father of Glastonbury, Michael Eavis. The idea of a dairy farmer with a Methodist heritage inventing and hosting Europe’s most voluminous and renowned rock event is typically British and quite wonderful. But Evans, not so much.
