Sorry, this episode is not currently available on BBC iPlayer Radio

With author Joe Moran

Lauren chats to author Joe Moran, whose new book 'Armchair Nation', looks at our obsession with the television - from how it reshaped our living rooms to changing the way we think. It also look at the fact that in 1970 10% of British homes still had no indoor lavatory or bath, 31% had no fridge and 62% had no telephone, but only 8% had no TV.

If you our record shopping today and looking for that extra little nudge of inspiration, then you've come to the right place as Lauren takes a look at the best of the week's releases in New Music Monday. Plus, we have free music for you to download in the MPFree and take some time to enjoy a rather fabulous Headphone Moment.
