Tom is joined by the iconic songwriting duo, Wendy and Lisa and we celebrate Valentine's Day with some of your favourite alternative love songs.

Wendy and Lisa are well known for their work with Prince in the 1980s, when they were an integral part of his band The Revolution. They have also written numerous scores for TV and films, including Dangerous Minds, Nurse Jackie and Heroes.

They are currently touring the UK with The Revolution and we've invited them into the 6 Music Studios this Valentine's Day to chat about their incredible careers, their favourite love songs and what it was like working with one Prince Rogers Nelson.

Across the rest of the show, we're throwing out the playlist and handing the music over to you, so you can request your favourite alternative love songs.
