As part of an interview in today's Observer Magazine:
Don't meet your heroes. Having Morrissey on my radio show was an experience - he called me shallow and I told him that he was confusing being shallow with liking life. He's an odd character: the minute I'd play a record he'd be charm personified and when we'd cut back to our interview, he'd turn back into pantomime Morrissey. He still calls me occasionally just to say hello.
