Words and Music: Patti Smith

The literary-themed weekend continues with wordsmith Patti Smith discussing her love of the Bronte sisters in the 3 Minute Epiphany.

This weekend's shows are given to the world of tomes, and wordsmith Patti Smith delivers a 3 Minute Epihany on the Bronté Sisters from the Bronté Pasonage in Haworth.

In 180 seconds Smith reveals how her love of the Bronté sisters kept her relationship with her own sister concrete, and how much she idolises them.

Expect a unique breakfast blend of tunes from the likes of SBTRKT, The Smiths, Burial, Radiohead and some of the newest music that's landed within Mary Anne's digital voyage this week.

There's also the chance to catch some of 6 Music's highlights across the week in 6 Best Bits.
