Wednesday sees Shaun chat with brilliant Irish comedian Ed Byrne about his new critically acclaimed show Crowd Pleaser. The show toured extensively through the UK in the spring and had a hugely successful month long run at the Edinburgh fringe and is back on the road due. Ed tells Shaun about the main themes of the show that include being a nerd, owning a cat, meeting your heroes and becoming a dad.
Ed has hosted BBC 1's Live At The Apollo and is a regular panellist on BBC 2's Mock the Week and Have I Got News for You as well as various other new comedy shows including Miranda Harts Christmas Unwrapped. A sucker for a quiz, particular recent highlights for Ed have been taking part in Celebrity Mastermind and being a contestant on Celebrity Pointless. Ed is also a regular contributor to comedy and music shows on both BBC Radio 2 and 4 and 6 Music.
All this plus Matt Everitt joins once more with the day's music news and Shaun takes a rib-tickling satirical romp through the day's news and events, with 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 Wild Beasts and Florence & The Machine delightfully wrap around your semi-conscious ears, along with the best of the greatest back catalogues on the planet; be they The Smiths, The Stones, The Clash or Fleetwood Mac.
