We like to keep busy at team Laverne, but even by our standards, that was quite the week. Lauren was joined in the studio by professional funny man, Jon Richardson, and they chatted about his new DVD, Nidiot. James Yorkston swung by, and he brought his guitar with him – his session was a lovely and intimate affair, and he spoke to Lauren about the personal turmoil that brought about his most recent album, The Cellardyke Recording and Wassailing Society. We capped off an excellent week by taking the show to Maida Vale, where The Smashing Pumpkins performed an entire live concert on the show, and Billy Corgan told Lauren about becoming an art rock band again.

Welcome to another exquisite week on the Lauren Laverne show. The Charlatans have had a pretty rough couple of years and it was good to see them back in fine form in session as they told all about getting back into the studio and getting back. Absolute gentlemen Jim Broadbent joined us on Thursday to talk all about playing Santa Claus, winning Oscars and his imaginary friends, Dixster and Baxter (he didn't like Dixster too much). Empire Magazine's Chris Hewitt talks Star Wars, Paddington and Horrible Bosses 2. But we start with Simon Green AKA Bonobo, who's had a very busy and productive couple of years. He popped into our kitchen on Tuesday tell all about the mood of his albums, enjoying the occasional flute and playing the biggest shows of his career.
