Former frontman and songwriter of Girls; Christopher Owens joins Lauren for a live session playing tracks from his debut solo album; Lysandre. The album is named after a girl he met whilst in France for a festival performance and was written, recorded and sequenced as a complete narrative - inspired by the events of Girls' first ever tour in the summer of 2008. Christopher describes the record as: "A coming of age story, a road trip story, a love story."

And, Santa Claus is on the show today offering his advice to those of you who may have a few Christmas issues you need some help with. Plus, Lauren takes a closer look at the best of the days releases in New Music Monday, offers up some brilliant free music in MPFree and an invitation to take some time to enjoy a rather fabulous Headphone Moment.
