Loudon Wainwright III, Guardians of the Galaxy, Japanese fiction

Duration:
30 minutes
First broadcast:
Friday 01 August 2014

Kirsty Lang with the singer Loudon Wainwright III, father of Rufus and Martha, who discusses his latest album Haven't Got the Blues (Yet). It covers subjects including ageing, death, depression - and despair at trying to find a parking space. As best-selling Japanese novelists Haruki Murakami and Kanae Minato publish new novels, we discuss contemporary Japanese fiction. Briony Hanson reviews Guardians of the Galaxy, a Marvel action film about a team of superheroes from the studios that made Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, and - as Northampton Museum and Art Gallery loses its Arts Council accreditation for selling an Egyptian statue in its collection - we discuss what this means for the museum.

Presenter: Kirsty Lang
Producer: Olivia Skinner.
