Morning Drive-bloggers and here's to a great Wednesday. Well done to all your offspring/relatives with exam results of note yesterday.

Lucky girl, she gets to come with me to see Spurs play tonight for another night of life-shortening tension. And that's just getting there. Show finish 7pm, kick off 7.45pm. I feel we will be late but will observe all speed and parking restrictions on the way.

Today it's lovely Paul Heaton day, the former Beautiful South man has a new album out called "Acid Country" and even though you probably have quite a few of his songs somewhere, you're going to find you have room for a few more. He's been on a 16 date pub tour, cycling from gig to gig and now the album and single are ready to go. Paul sings after 6.

And tunes today for the Air Guitar World Championships being held in Finland. Either guitar classics to strike the pose to, or songs to comment on this bizarre if strangely rewarding activity. Whatever inspires...
