Happy Monday!

3 hours
First broadcast:
Monday 26 November 2012

A Rolling Stones review, the morning after their 50th anniversary gig, straight from the News Horse's mouth (that'll be Matt then), and more reunion gigs news as Shaun Ryder, reformed frontman of the Happy Mondays, talks about the band's shows coming up in December, oh and his love of alien-spotting.

Yep, that literally makes it a "Happy Monday" in our book, as Our Shaun ushers in a bright new week with laughs provided by the daft goings-on in the world-at-large, his own life, and that of the 6 Music listeners. Plus the full low-down on Shaun's trip back home to sort-of turn on the Leigh Christmas lights.

Plus the nation shares its Earworm tracks (the ones that have wriggled in at night only to wake you up on a loop first thing).

All this is wrapped up in a huge snuggly duvet of kicking alternative tunes, both old and new, and a breakfast show devotee applauds something wonderful in the world with a Song Of Praise.
