Mark Ronson joins Jo live in the studio and Vampire Weekend play live in session with tracks from their long-awaited fourth album Father Of The Bride.

Mark Ronson is one of the world's most successful musicians and record producers. Working with a string of a-list musicians such as Amy Winehouse and Bruno Mars. He is releasing his fifth album Late Night Feelings in June - featuring Miley Cyrus, Lykke Li and Camila Cabello. He's described the record as a collection of "sad bangers".

Vampire Weekend formed whilst Ezra Koenig, Chris Tomson, Chris Baio and Rostam Batmanglij were students whilst studying at Columbia University, New York. They soon found success with the singles A-Punk and Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa from their debut self-titled album, released in 2008. This was followed by the albums Contra in 2010 and Modern Vampires Of The City in 2013, with the band becoming a big live draw, headlining festivals such as Latitude in the UK. The group then took a break before finally releasing their first album since 2013, their first without Rostam, earlier this month. Father Of The Bride features the singles Harmony Hall and This Life and has been created with the help of collaborators such as Danielle Haim, Mark Ronson and Steve Lacy. The band will be playing Glastonbury Festival and touring the UK later this year.

Plus Jo handpicks her favourite new music from all genres of the musical spectrum and quality vintage songs too. And whether you’re picking up or dropping off, Jo provides the soundtrack for the Taxi Service.
