Shaun Keaveny takes a rib-tickling satirical romp through the day's news and events, 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.

All this plus after 9am legendary rock photographer Kevin Cummins joins Shaun to chat about his new Blur exhibition. Exhibited together for the first time, Blur 21: The Exhibition, is an extraordinary collection of over 70 images of Blur from legendary music photographers, designers and artists including Pennie Smith, Kevin Cummins, Paul Postle, Tom Sheehan, Banksy and Julian Opie, celebrating the band's 21 year career.

He has photographed a large number of legendary musicians throughout his career, including Mick Jagger, Ian Curtis, Morrissey, Courtney Love, Patti Smith, and David Bowie.
