Take my mother-in-law... Please do

2 hours
First broadcast:
Wednesday 09 June 2010

Cool alternative tunes from Blondie, Delphic, The Specials, PJ Harvey, and a storming 5.15 Request from Tenpole Tudor. Plus daft chat from your early morning host The Hawk, and his long-suffering producer Slev.

This morning, Darren Bett, the man at the BBC's Weather Centre, gave a wide-ranging forecast for the UK, including what the elements have in store for the Isle of Wight Festival this coming weekend. But the talking point of the morning was not the weather but of Slev's much-loved Mother-in-Law who happened to have insulted her at the weekend.

Also, in a pop star 'Scratch and Sniff' it was revealed that Richie Havens had a whiff of coconuts about him (true), and Phil Oakey of The Human League smells of pipe and slippers (not true). And there was another game of The Rockbook Files where Hawk was in charge...oh dear.
