Shaun does wonders for your ears from his impeccable taste in music. Thursday sees Shaun joined live in studio by Matt Everitt for an irreverent take on the day's music news and comedian Marcus Brigstocke chats after 9am about his new book 'God Collar'.

Based on Marcus Brigstocke's award-winning Edinburgh and West End show, God Collar focuses on the 'God-shaped hole' that opened up in Marcus's life following the death of his best friend. Exploring his own issues surrounding faith - his lack of it, his need for it, some people's waste of it and what good purposes it might serve if he could get hold of it - he rails against the holy trinity of Abrahamic religions (Islam, Christianity and Judaism) while atheists, agnostics and believers of all faiths get it in the neck too. God Collar is a scathing look at modern faith that will leave you laughing out loud and examining your own beliefs in equal measure.

And as for the soundtrack? We're talking...Midlake, DJ Shadow, Pixies, Richard Hawley, Nirvana, The Streets... need we go on?
