Mr Astro Ballsocket

It's Friday morning and Shaun looks ahead to the weekend with another amazing collection of music and magnitude of amazing minds. Prof Brian Cox is on the phone talking about finishing his 'Wonders Of The Universe' book and how great Einstein was. Add to this Murray Lachlan Young giving us a non sexist poem and Matt Everitt with music news from Shaun Ryder, The Go! Team and Tom Williams and the Boat and you've got a pretty special programme. But what about the soundtrack? Well how does some ...Adele, Radiohead, The Specials, The Small Faces, The Joy Formidable and The Wedding Present sound?

All this AND Shaun asking 'Do you want a Nimrod?', after the MOD decide to scrap a £4billion fleet, we find some alternative uses for these surveillance jets that are usually best equipped to detect and sink enemy submarines and we debate the merits of going to gigs on your own.

Shaun Keaveny: never knowingly over-played.
