Pint-sized pop princess Kylie Minogue joins us for Breakfast!

Can you believe she's been in the biz for 25 years?! Her album 'K25' is a celebration of every single one of them.

Kylie now holds the record for the most played female artist on UK radio!

But her latest album is something a little extra special. 'The Abbey Road Sessions' features all of Kylie's hits as we've never heard them before; performed live with a full orchestra at the legendary London studios. And its proved so popular so far that it entered the UK album chart in the silver medal position!

We're 'spinning around' with excitement at the prospect of sharing a coffee and a croissant with pop royalty this morning!

    From Canon Ann Easter

    This is an action-packed week, celebrating all things James Bond on Radio 2 and then today is the forty ninth anniversary of the very first episode of Doctor Who.

    I have seen most of the James Bond films but I haven’t really seen many episodes of Doctor Who and that’s partly because I could get on with making the tea while the children watched it - lined up on the settee, they’d be hiding behind the cushions, eyes like saucers, hardly daring to breathe.

    They say that lots of people were watching when the first episode of Doctor Who was broadcast because it was the day after the assassination of President Kennedy but no doubt once they’d started watching the programme, it was so exciting that they couldn’t bear not knowing what happened next. Certainly Dominic, my younger son, was devoted to it; he had all the Dr Who videos and very long scarves and even went to a convention once.

    But I also didn’t watch because I’d say I prefer real life. I don’t like that extreme escapism which moves from historical drama one week to science fiction the next, and I think there are quite enough real things to frighten the life out of me without looking for more.

    And yet, of course, stories have a way of telling us truths in a more profound and moving manner than any of the kitchen sinky stuff that I like. Doctor Who, although he regenerates and transmogrifies and can go anywhere or any time, always stays the same at heart – and I’m told he has two hearts, so doubly the same! He is very anti-violence, much preferring to talk or think his way out of trouble, and his character and skills are entertaining and attractive in themselves; he’s compassionate and can overcome anything - even the Daleks.

    In a very exciting and graphic way, Doctor Who shows us that, in the end, good is always better than evil and love is most important which ever incarnation you’re in. And I’ll go with that.
