Jamie Cullum

7.00-8.00pm BBC RADIO 2

This week, to celebrate the 75th birthday of Scottish tenor saxophonist Bobby Wellins, Jamie Cullum scours the BBC archives and discovers a rare recording of the Bobby Wellins Quintet performing live on the Jazz On Britain programme in 1977. With his latest album having been released in February, Jamie examines the diverse range of music Bobby has contributed to the jazz scene over his 50-year career.

The John Bonham Story

Tuesday 7 June
10.00-11.00pm BBC RADIO 2

Rock superstar and lifelong Led Zeppelin fan Dave Grohl celebrates a man who the Encyclopaedia Britannica describes as "the perfect model for all hard rock drummers that have followed".

On 25 September 1980, John Henry "Bonzo" Bonham died aged just 32, having consumed four quadruple vodkas for breakfast and continuing to drink throughout the day. His destiny was forged by his ferocious drumming style and an insatiable appetite for living life to the full.

Grohl explores Bonham's extraordinary life, his legendary playing with Led Zeppelin and his tragic and untimely death. And of course all this is set to a rich soundtrack of music.

It features new interview material from Led Zeppelin's Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones; plus Lulu; Bonham's sister Deborah; his son Jason; and more. This documentary recently won the Sony Award for Best Music Special and first aired on BBC 6 Music.

Afternoon On 3 – BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra

Tuesday 7 June
2.00-5.00pm BBC RADIO 3

Today's music from the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra includes William Walton's Second Symphony, conducted by Martyn Brabbins. Composed more than 25 years after Walton had written his first symphony, it was greeted with a muted response by the younger critics of the time as being out of date. But, as the years pass, opinions are shifting in its favour.

The programme also hears from another English composer – Arthur Somervell – with a work for piano and orchestra in which pianist Martin Roscoe joins the orchestra and Martyn Brabbins.

The second half of the programme is given over to a performance recorded in Inverness featuring the BBC SSO's principal oboe, Stella McCracken, and conducted by the orchestra's associate guest conductor, Andrew Manze.

Mozart's wonderful Oboe Concerto is sandwiched between the gems of Brahms's Tragic Overture and his First Symphony.

Afternoon Play – A Monstrous Vitality

Tuesday 7 June
2.15-3.00pm BBC RADIO 4

June Whitfield stars as the indomitable actress Margaret Rutherford, who fell in love with a man 30 years her junior.

Margaret made an indelible impression on the British public with her extraordinary presence and impeccable comic timing. She played a succession of indomitable spinster enthusiasts and authoritarian eccentrics, not dissimilar to her own persona.

This play concentrates on a period in the Fifties and Margaret's relationship with Malcolm Troup, a young Canadian musician, with whom she became inextricably involved.

A mutual love of music provides the basis for a genuine fondness, which develops into an intense relationship. Unfortunately, Margaret becomes infatuated and misreads Malcolm's affection as an indication that he is equally smitten. Malcolm discusses the situation with Margaret's husband, Stringer Davis, and the men decide it is best if Malcolm disappears completely and leaves for South America.

All In The Mind Ep 8/13

New series
Tuesday 7 June
9.00-9.30pm BBC RADIO 4

Claudia Hammond explores compassion-focused therapy, as the series exploring the limits and potential of the human mind continues.

Compassion is the cornerstone of Professor Paul Gilbert's work as a psychologist in Derby. For people with chronic mental health problems, often from neglectful or abusive backgrounds, it is designed to help stop their feelings of shame and self- criticism.

In this week's All In The Mind, Claudia talks to Professor Gilbert about compassion, what it is, why it evolved and why it is useful as a basis for talking therapies.
