Janice previews the world premiere of Anything That Gives Off Light, plus Limmy shares his Daft Wee Stories

The Janice Forsyth Show's Thursday offering at the BBC Blue Tent promises to brighten up your afternoon whether you're in the audience or listening on the radio!

Janice will be previewing the World Premiere of 'Anything That Gives off Light' at The Edinburgh International Festival: featuring live music from the Scottish and American folk traditions, it's a foot-stomping collaboration exploring 'the tension between self-interest and sacrifice', in the pursuit of life, liberty and happiness!

She will have music and witty conversation with Colin Hay - a singer/songwriter and storyteller. He made musical history with Grammy-winning Men at Work in the 80's. Colin and his band, who hail from Philadelphia, Peru and Cuba, will take us on a musical journey and he will tell us all about his festival show - Colin Hay: Get Rid of the Minstrel.

Talking of funny men, following last year's sell-out tour, Limmy returns to the Festival with a new selection of stories from his Sunday Times bestseller, 'Daft Wee Stories' - he'll join Janice on the sofa to discuss it all.

We'll also have our usual weekly movie reviews,(including an exclusive taped interview with Ricky Gervais), uplifting musical accompaniment from the truly incomparable Véloniños and comedy about 'fitting in' with Zoe Lyons and the brilliant Jake Yapp.
