Gervase Phinn, Chrissie Hynde and Jim Kerr

Keith is joined by former school inspector-turned-author Gervase Phinn, as he launches a new book called Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Stars and embarks on a tour that will bring him to Hereford's Courtyard Theatre (8th Nov), Llandudno's Venue Cymru (9th Nov), Bromsgrove's Artrix Theatre (16th Nov), Telford's Oakengates Theatre (17th Nov), Stoke's Victoria Hall (18th Nov), Cannock's Prince Of Wales Theatre (1st Dec), Cheltenham's Town Hall (6th Dec) and Market Drayton's Festival Centre (12th-13th Dec).

She's the epitome of a rock chick and she joins Keith for a chat. Chrissie Hynde first came to prominence in the 70s as the lead singer of The Pretenders. She's now working alongside Welsh singer JP Jones, as part of 'JP, Chrissie & The Fairground Boys' and they've just released their debut album, 'Fidelity!'.

Also on The Extravaganza is Chrissie's ex-husband, Jim Kerr. Jim came to fame as the lead singer of Simple Minds, who recently completed a successful reunion tour. He's now working on a solo project called 'Lost Boy!' releasing an album called 'Lost Boy aka Jim Kerr' and he's embarking on the 'Electroset' tour, which will bring him to Leicester's Academy 2 (17th Nov), Birmingham's Academy 2 (18th Nov), Manchester's Academy (21st Nov) and Liverpool's Academy 2 (22nd Nov).

There's also another chance to 'Beat The Boggler' and catch 'I'm Desperate Dan' before, ending up with Keith having a 'Rummage In The Cupboard', who knows what he will find!
