Middle Age Shout Outs & Andrew WK

Very exciting programme to end the week this week as we welcome to the show a man whose rule of life we follow to the letter - ANDREW WK.

This year sees the 10th anniversary of his debut album 'I Get Wet' and he'll be chatting with Shaun about the celelbration and how his life and career has changed in those 10 years. He is now a celebrated producer, nominted for a Grammy for his work with Lee Scratch Perry - Andrew's recent accomplishments also include hosting the successful Cartoon Network TV program, "Destroy Build Destroy" - with over 1.7 million viewers a week, the program quickly became the #1 show in its time slot for boys 6-11 on ALL of television, and it earned Andrew the "Best Host" award from KidScreen, an youth TV industry publication. Andrew was invited to write and perform an official theme song to the 2012 World Snowboarding Championship in Oslo, Norway, and serve as the event's musical diplomat.

All this plus we touch on his classic tune PARTY HARD! Add to this Shaun's rib-tickling satirical romp through the day's news and events all set to 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 massage 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 The Fall, plus another poem from Murray Lachlan Young and more of your MIDDLE AGE SHOUT OUTS.
