Tom Robinson meets veteran Scottish songwriter Rab Noakes, who brings in a pile of records that tell his own history of the music that influenced Glasgow.

Tom presents his unique mix of music including BBC Introducing tracks. Tonight he's joined by veteran Scottish singer-songwriter Rab Noakes. He was born in St Andrews, but has been an honorary Glaswegian since 1963. He'll take Tom on a personal journey through Glasgow's rich music history, ahead of next weekend's 6 Music Festival from the city.

At 11 o'clock Tom launches The After Hour, where he dusts off tracks from the outer reaches of his record collection.
