This Friday Edith has a session and interview with Miles Kane who performs tracks from his debut album Colour Of The Trap. Miles is a young singer/songwriter from The Wirral who was one half of The Last Shadow Puppets with his best friend Alex Turner (Arctic Monkeys).

This is the first time Miles has performed these new tracks acoustic. He talks honestly about the challenges of making a solo album and also about working with one of his heroes - Gruff from Super Furry Animals. You'll hear how John Lennon, Badly Drawn Boy and Duane Eddy have all influenced Miles' music.

Also this week we're joined by record producer Gary Langan who has probably worked on some of your favourite albums of the 1980s/1990s, Gary is also a founding member of The Art of Noise which we'll hear more about in the coming weeks. One of his first jobs was studio engineer for the early Queen albums and he was lucky enough to be in the room when they first played back the final mix of Bohemian Rhapsody. We'll hear more about those Queen sessions in this week's show but here's a preview for now.

If you're looking for new things to buy and listen to this weekend, Edith will have two hours worth of recommendations of new albums, reissues and classics you may have missed. I hope you can join us Friday night at 2005pm and repeated Sunday 1005pm.
