From trousers to houses...Shaun spoke to Wayne Hemmingway ahead of the 60th anniversary celebrations for The Festival of Britain which opens this weekend. The festival pays homage to the 1951 Festival and the South Bank Exhibition. The festival will take over the 21-acre site for four months (22 April - 4 September 2011) which features a seaside holiday down by the river where a 70-metres urban beach and 14 artist-commissioned beach huts will transform Queen's Walk and where visitors can take a stroll in new gardens around the site; visit the British countryside and its wildlife, including a giant straw fox!

Matt Everitt with the latest from Imogen Heap, George Michael's wedding gift and he looks ahead to this years Student Radio Awards.

All this and the perfect morning soundtrack for any music-lover; from northern soul to new folk; rock 'n' roll to indie disco. New tracks from the likes of Death cab For Cutie and Beastie Boys delightfully wrap around your semi-conscious ears, along with the best of the greatest back catalogues on the planet; be they The Smiths, Radiohead, James Brown, Nine Inch Nails..........need we go on?
