Shaun does wonders for your ears from his impeccable taste in music, to A-list guests. Shaun is joined live in studio by Elizabeth Alker for an interesting take on the day's music news. And as for the soundtrack? We're talking...The Smiths, The Beatles, Friendly Fires, Cake, Emmy The Great, A Tribe Called Quest, Bowie, The Cardigans, MGMT... need we go on?

Guest wise, Shaun is joined by John Simm in the studio after 9am to chat about his new BBC drama 'Exile'. Created by Paul Abbott and written by Danny Brocklehurst, 'Exile' is a three part psychological thriller that tells an intimate story of prodigal redemption.

John Simm plays Tom Ronstadt, a successful London journalist whose world has fallen apart and it's all his own doing. With his career and life in ruins he decides to return to his hometown in Lancashire for the first time in 18 years. He finds his father Sam (Jim Broadbent), who Tom idolised as a child, in the grip of Alzheimer's - a once formidable man now being cared for by his younger sister Nancy (Olivia Coleman).

Over the three episodes Tom unravels the mystery linked to his childhood that drove him away all those years ago. In trying to extract information and encouraging him to remember the past, Tom becomes increasingly frustrated with his father's failure to remember. He persists unaware that he is unearthing a devastating crime that will reveal secrets he could never have imagined.

Shaun Dooley, Timothy West and Claire Goose will also star.
