With Conor Oberst

3 hours
First broadcast:
Saturday 26 July 2014

Tom talks in depth to American musician Conor Oberst, best known for his work under the guise of Bright Eyes. He released his 6th solo studio album Upside Down Mountain in May.

Amongst many things they talk about the song he wrote about Kathleen 'kick' Kennedy, which was meant to be a tribute but which has been taken the wrong way by the Kennedy family. He tells how he had no idea about the OMD song Enola Gay when he wrote a song about the same thing for his new album.

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.
