Karren Brady

Karren Brady is well known as the right hand woman to Sir Alan Sugar on TV’s The Apprentice, and also as a formidable force in business – standing out not only as a huge success, but also as a woman in the undeniably male world of football. She started her 20 year career in football when she was appointed Managing Director of Birmingham City Football Club aged only 23, and took the club from administration to sell it for an incredible £82 million. Now she’s Vice Chairman of West Ham football club, as well as a mother of two, and also one of the 100 women named as the country’s most powerful on the Woman’s Hour Power List. In true Apprentice tradition, Jane Garvey met Karren Brady in the boardroom of her football club, where they talked about her no- nonsense route to the top and her commitment to seeing more women succeed like her in the world of business.

Valerie June

Valerie June

US singer-songwriter Valerie June makes music she calls “organic moonshine roots music” – a special blend of folk, soul, gospel, and blues. She learnt to sing in church, and used to help her father promote local gospel singers. Valerie talks about her life in Tennessee, her musical influences, and the inspiration behind her song Workin’ Woman Blues, which she plays for us live in the studio. 

Valerie June’s album Pushin’ Against A Stone is out now on Sunday Best. She will be playing in London on 27 July, the Cambridge Folk Festival on the 28 July, at Bestival and the End of the Road Festival in September.


It’s estimated that 3 million people in the UK have osteoporosis and there are roughly 300,000 fragility fractures a year. But although bone loss occurs naturally in everyone as they get older, broken bones because of osteoporosis are not an inevitable part of ageing. So what can be done to prevent and treat them? Jane is joined by Dr Richard Keen, consultant rheumatologist and specialist in osteoporosis,  and by Jean Duggleby, who suffered five fractures over ten years before she was diagnosed with the condition.
