If anyone knows how to get into a groove, it's music producer & musician par excellence Nile Rodgers. He tells Janice about his collaboration with artist Jean Pierre Muller - and gives us an exclusive first listen to the music he's composed for the project.

Whether you know him as the loveable Hamish, or the rather more menacing Begbie, he's definitely one of Scotland's best dramatic exports - Robert Carlyle drops into the Culture Studio.

Janice takes a look ahead to BBC Scotland's Alive with Music with Jamie McDougal - a weekend of free concerts and events at Glasgow's City Halls! Jazz educator Richard Michael will be on piano, and SSO cellist Anthony Sayer will be telling us about ending his 44 year musical career on a high.

International best-selling author, Jeffery Deaver, gives his forensic take on crime-writing, with his new rollercoaster thriller The Kill Room.

And as it's the summer solstice, Janice hears about a look at the partnership between the Royal Shakespeare Company and Google, on a very digital Midsummer Night's Dreaming.
