Clive Anderson and guests with an eclectic mix of conversation, music and comedy.

Rita Rudner joins Clive as she returns to the London stage for the first time in fifteen years with her one-woman show 'Rita Rudner Live in London. Rita is Las Vegas's most successful female comedian, with the longest running solo show in history with over one million tickets sold.

Designer and co-founder of the Red or Dead fashion label Wayne Hemingway talks about his Vintage Festival, celebrating seven decades of British cool with live music from Sandie Shaw, Percy Sledge and Robin Gibb. With DJ sets from Norman Jay and Craig Charles. And it's all indoors with proper toilets!

Michelle Ryan is best known for playing Zoe Slater in Eastenders but she has also appeared in Dr Who, Merlin and was The Bionic Woman. She stars in Ben Miller's directorial debut feature film Huge with Noel Clarke and Johnny Harris as a double act trying to make it big in the comedy world.

Listen Against and The Now Show's Jon Holmes talks to the comedian Dave Gorman. His past projects have involved a worldwide search to find other Dave Gorman, an obsession with Googlewhacks and a road trip to find non-corporate America. His latest book 'Dave Gorman Vs The Rest of the World, sees him challenge people all over the UK to a variety of games of their choice, from cards, darts, scrabble and Monopoly to Khet, Kubb, Tikal and Smite. And in August he returns to the Edinburgh Fringe for the first time in eight years with his new show, Dave Gorman's Powerpoint Presentation.

Born on a hippie commune in Ontario then raised in another in Virginia, USA, singer-songwriter Devon Sproule returns to the Loose Ends studio. With a full band behind her, she performs the title track from her latest album 'I Love You, Go Easy'.

And the soundtrack of summer comes folky Vetiver from San Francisco. They play 'Wonder Why' from their album The Errant Charm.
