As part of Radio 2's Great British Songbook, Ken Bruce is joined this week by English songwriter and record producer Guy Chambers who is perhaps most well known for his music collaborations on the solo projects of Robbie Williams. Guy will be picking his Tracks Of My Years and has chosen songs composed solely by British songwriters. Today's songs come courtesy of The Beatles and Kate Bush. Plus, Ken's daily romantic feature becomes the Great British Love Song for the next two weeks and another two valiant competitors slug it out on PopMaster.
