3 hours, 5 minutes
First broadcast:
Wednesday 15 December 2010

We're halfway through the week and on today's show, Steve is joined by Upstairs Downstairs actress Jean Marsh, movie stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway and two of the stars of the UK's biggest pantos - Biggins and Brian Conley.

The rest of the afternoon is stuffed with three hours of fantastic music including half an hour of classic Non-Stop Oldies, today chosen by Julie Appleton from Stockport in Cheshire. Julie, a recently retired District Nurse, gets pulses racing with some great choices from Warren Zevon, Fleetwod Mac and Medicine Head.

There are of course, more amazing Factoids to impress your friends with, and Steve and the team provide some with a festive twist today, including how many hours it takes Santa to deliver presents to every household in the world.

In the Talkies this afternoon, Janey gets the giggles reminiscing about the classic comedy 'tray' routine her dad used to do and the team discuss the merits of 'regifting' this Christmas.
