Author Will Storr

Author Will Storr joins Shaun Keaveny to chat about his new book, plus Matt Everitt chats about Boyz II Men with Dave Grohl from Foo Fighters.

Shaun welcomed author Will Storr to the programme to chat about his new book - Selfie: How We Became So Self-Obsessed and What It's Doing to Us - a fascinating book that asks is the selfie-taking generation unusually narcissistic? Plus, Matt Everitt was here with the music news which included a chat with Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins from The Foo Fighters who told us that Boyz II Men are on their new album.

Today was the 60th anniversary of Paul McCartney and John Lennon meeting for the first time and we dug our some audio of Macca talking about that very first meeting. There was also an Elvis Presley into and a long discussion about the rise of the jellyfish. We for one, welcome our new wobbly overlords. Plus, Earworms in the first hour and an Album of the Day track from Nas' classic 2002 'Life is Good' album.
