British radio station snuffs out Blunt

CHELMSFORD, England, May 30 (UPI) -- A British radio station says it needs a break from native son James Blunt, who became an international sensation with "You're Beautiful."

Essex FM said its listeners are overdosing on Blunt's music -- so to put it bluntly, he's being banished from its airwaves.

"We don't have anything against James Blunt," Program Director Chris Cotton said on the station's Web site. "We're pleased he's been so successful, but we really need a break."

Blunt won two Ivor Novello Awards in London last week with "You're Beautiful" named most performed work and international hit of the year.

At one point, the single hit No. 1 in 25 countries.
