First broadcast:
Sunday 03 February 2013

Sir Terry Wogan presents his Sunday morning show, easing you into your Sunday morning with music and musings.

This week he's joined by the New York singer-songwriter Nell Bryden. Previously a guest on Weekend Wogan in 2010, she will return to the studio for an intimate acoustic session and catch-up with Terry. Influenced by country, folk blues and jazz, her fourth studio album Shake The Tree was released in the summer of 2012. January saw her tour the UK supporting Gary Barlow, and also playing her own headlines shows.

Terry will also be joined by broadcaster, journalist and author Libby Purves, taking a wry look at the books, films, TV shows and news stories that have taken her interest of late. Best known for presenting the Radio 4 series Midweek, she is a noted newspaper columnist and has received the OBE for services to journalism.

On the weekend that Eva Cassidy would have turned fifty, the singer Deborah Rose will also join Sir Terry and perform one of Eva's best loved songs live in the studio.
