Lauren Laverne, Jackie Collins and Sanjeev Bhaskar

Steve, Tim and Janey are joined by 6 Music host Lauren Laverne who reveals all about tonight's Mercury Prize nominees. Author Jackie Collins gets hot and bothered when Steve tries out his French accent on her and friend of the show, actor and comedian Sanjeev Bhaskar talks about a green initiative he's involved in with HRH Prince of Wales and a new series called The Indian Doctor set in rural Wales.

In this afternoon's fascinating Factoids - find out how dirty your telephone is compared to your toilet, and what unusual food rabbits love more than carrots.

In the top notch Talkie bits, Janey reveals how money can buy you happiness (unless you earn over £50,000 a year) and Tim discovers why you daydream more on a Tuesday.

Today's Oldies are chosen by Paul Rohun from Sutton-in-Ashfield in Nottinghamshire, who delights us with some gems from The Cult, Manfred Mann and Van McCoy.
