The multi award-winning lyricist presents a selection of iconic songs from The Great American Songbook as well as rich offerings from The Best Of British.

The show's weekly 'Matt Moment' features a highlight from a man whom Frank Sinatra described as his favourite British singer - Matt Monro - and the Words And Music feature showcases the few geniuses who could indeed pen both.
