With Idris Elba

Idris Elba presents a 3 Minute Epiphany on the role of Luther, plus an All Queens mix.

Mary Anne launches her brand new mid-morning show, with an eclectic selection of new music and familiar friends.

She welcomes actor, director and DJ Idris Elba, who presents a 3 Minute Epiphany on the role of Luther. Idris speaks candidly about how as an actor, he explores darkness and light within the character, and why he was drawn to the role of Luther in the first place.

Plus Mary Anne begins the week with a carefully curated All Queens mix, which is an all-female identifying selection of tracks, beginning with the legendary Grace Jones.

She will also launch new feature Hit Reset, where we invite listeners to take a moment away from the demands of daily life. And we introduce our favourite new artist to the 6 Music audience, in Near Future.
