Sorry, this episode is not currently available on BBC iPlayer Radio


After a long weekend of wreaking havoc in France (well, eating cheese and drinking wine), the self-proclaimed bad boy of the BBC returns with an all-new Monday. In When Harry Potter Met Sally, Alex is mixing classic films up to create interesting new storylines, such as The Bean Ultimatum and Mrs. Doubtfire Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. In new thread, Blaggage Claim, we are exposing those outrageous claims that leave you wondering, "how can you make that claim?". We've all seen those signs along the lines of "The tastiest food in the world from your favourite pizzeria!" How do they know that? Have they asked me? Our News Hank subject today is the Queen of Controversy herself, Madonna.
From Lester's Library there is a track from new artist Conil, and a bit of doo-wop from The Dells. There is some classic Northern Soul from Paul Anka in Listener's Library, a track from our new Album of the Week by Free featuring Paul Rodgers, a new Record of the Week from Meat Loaf and Pause for Thought from Ali Hutchison.
