Do you want too much chat, not enough music and too many adverts? Try someone else. Want the perfect balance of brilliant alternative music and waking witticisms? Try us. A rib-tickling satirical romp through the day's news and events, to the perfect morning soundtrack for anyone music-lover; from northern soul to new folk; rock 'n' roll to indie disco. New tracks from the likes of Friendly Fires and Foals are nestled in next to the back catalogues of Hendrix and The Smiths.

Shaun is joined live in studio by Matt Everitt for an irreverent take on the day's music news and Jeremy Dyson, one quarter of The League Of Gentlemen joins us to chat about his new show 'Roald Dahl's Twisted Tales'.

Roald Dahl, loved for his children's books, also wrote iconic short stories for adults filled with sinister twists and turns, which were previously produced for television in Tales of the Unexpected on ITV and Alfred Hitchcock Presents. Dyson brings this delightfully dark and dangerous world filled with unexpected surprises to the stage. This is Jeremy's second stage play, his first the phenomenally successful Ghost Stories which he was co-creator for and is now enjoying an extended West End run. He's most well-known for his award-winning projects as part of The League of Gentlemen.
