Words: Tracey Thorn and Cory Doctorow

Mary Anne enters the headspace of a Saturday morning though some extraordinary tunes and wild literary enlightenment with Tracey Thorn and Cory Doctorow.

In 2012 Tracey Thorn, singer and founder of Everything But The Girl, released her autobiography 'Bedsit Disco Queen'. In her 3 Minute Epiphany Tracey answers the question: "How Do You Go About Writing Your Memoirs?"

Cory Doctorow, science-fiction author (The Rapture of The Nerds, Little Brother and Homeland) blogger and advocate of copyright liberalisation answers the question: "Why Should Books Be Free?" in 180 seconds.

Expect a unique breakfast blend of tunes from the likes of Bob Marley, Flying Lotus, Dorothy Southern, David Bowie and some of the newest music that's landed in Mary Anne's digital expedition this week.

She will also go diving for musical pearls in the BBC's Live Music Archive...
