Lauren welcomes public historian Greg Jenner as we go 'Back to School' through September. All month we're asking writers, thinkers, artists and academics to wax lyrical about their respective fields, and tell us why they think it's important to keep on learning. We'll also delve into their musical collections to see how song helps to inspire them.

Lauren will also bring you half an hour of amazing music suggested by our beloved listener's in this week's People's Playlist. There's more new music for our Just Added playlist, a Headphones Moment and tons of top tunes.
