Tom has a very special session from Mercury Prize nominee, folk roots pioneer and traditional music specialist Sam Lee. His new album The Fade In Time is out next month.
He's spent time collecting, restoring and sharing ancient music from Britain and Ireland, particularly the Romany Gypsy and Irish traveller communities. His debut album Ground Of It's Own was nominated for the 2012 Mercury Music Prize.

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.
