Music stars join 5 Live's Fighting Talk musical special

BBC Radio 5 Live's popular points-for-punditry show hosts a special musical version on Saturday 16 April as stars of the music scene enter the Fighting Talk arena.

The line-up for the Sony nominated show hosted by Colin Murray includes wise cracking New Yorker Huey Morgan of the Fun Lovin' Criminals, BBC 6 Music; Radio 2's Steve Lamacq; Radiohead guitarist Ed O'Brien and former England and Aston Villa player Dion Dublin.

The show is an hour of ferocious sporting banter and returns to the studio fresh from the Empire Theatre in Liverpool where it was part of 5 Live's Grand National broadcasts in the city last week, playing in front of a record audience of 1,600 people.

Normally featuring sportsmen, comedians and journalists, the show will still feature the key sporting questions it is known and loved for with a nod to the musical backgrounds of the participants in this special one-off show.
