Guy celebrates what would have been Nick Drake's 70th birthday and introduces another feature - Would You Make Another Record Please?

In On This Day there's some stonking archive clips, one about the Watergate Tapes, another from a cotton mill in Lancashire plus we hear record producer Joe Boyd talking about John Cale's musical relationship with Nick Drake.

The Beckapedia sheds some light on the mysterious Shelagh McDonald.

All that plus music from Famy, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Prince (a new track), The Moonflowers and Stravinsky.

Boom.
