Live from the BBC Tent at the Hay-on-Wye Festival

It's Hay-on-Wireless! BBC 6 Music's Mark Radcliffe and Stuart Maconie present a show live from the BBC tent at Hay-on-Wye Literary Festival, with special guests Marcus Brigstocke, Kirsty Wark, festival founder Peter Florence and 6 Music's very own Cerys Matthews.

Expect witty badinage and even a spot of live music on this show as Mark and Stuart hold court in front of a live festival audience! Plus chats with broadcaster, presenter and writer Kirsty Wark, comedian and Hay regular Marcus Brigstocke and festival founder Peter Florence, who tells us more about the background to the festival.

There'll be live music from singer-songwriter and 6 Music presenter Cerys Matthews who performs a brand new track, and even a dash of audience participation with a special version of the regular Radcliffe and Maconie Show feature, Teatime Themetime.

The Hay Festival of Literature & Arts is a festival held each year at a variety of venues around Hay-on-Wye, Powys, Wales. Devised by Norman and Peter Florence in 1988, the festival has expanded in recent years and now includes musical performances and film previews.
