Tom chats to John Linnell, founder member of Grammy award winning act US They Might Be Giants.
They formed in Brooklyn in 1982, have won two Grammys, released 17 studio albums to date and soundtracks to various hit movies and TV shows. They remain astoundingly prolific and have managed the difficult feat of achieving mass popularity while remaining resolutely left field.
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.
