With Suzanne Vega

3 hours
First broadcast:
Saturday 15 February 2014

Tom chats to New York singer Suzanne Vega, who releases her 8th studio album Tales From The Realm of the Queen of Pentacles this month, her first for 7 years.
Suzanne enjoyed success with her self-titled debut album in 1985, off the back of the single Marlene On The Wall. But it was her 1987 follow up Solitude Standing that brought her into the mainstream, with the singles Luka and the acapella track Tom's Diner. Since her last studio album Beauty & Crime in 2007 she has re-recorded her back catalogue over a 4 volume album series called Close-Up.

Huw Stephens from Radio 1 shares his personal tip from BBC Introducing, as does one of the Introducing shows from around the UK.
At 11 o'clock Tom launches The After Hour, where he dusts off tracks from the outer reaches of his record collection.
