Wednesday's phone-in; Should prisoners have the vote? Two convicted murderers, one who's in Wakefield prison, find out today whether they've won a Supreme Court battle to be allowed to vote while they're in jail.
Plus Wes meets Ibrar Ali who lost his arm in a roadside bomb whilst serving for the Yorkshire Regiment - he's now preparing to take on the challenge of a lifetime - racing across the South Pole with Prince Harry.
Writer and composer Benjamin Till tells us about his latest musical project, which looks at three aspects of WW1 in Leeds.
Irish folk duo Foster and Allan join Wes for a chat and perform live.
And Wednesday's Place of the Day is Harehills.
