On Tuesday’s show Janice will be hearing about the 4 miners from Prestonpans who went to fight against Franco in the Spanish Civil war. This story has been brought to the stage and Janice will be chatting to the writer Robbie Gordon and Stuart Ramage from the band VanIves who composed music for 549: SCOTS OF THE SPANISH CIVIL WAR.

Duncan Lamont is a saxophonist from Greenock who has played with Frank Sinatra, Fred Astaire, Bing Crosby and Paul McCartney to name just a few. He also wrote the music for the children’s TV series Mr Benn! Duncan is returning to his home town to play a one off gig and Janice chats to him about his incredible life!

After the reports of problems with sound at the Spice Girls concerts and ahead of their gig at Murrayfield this coming weekend, we hear from the perspective of a sound engineer and Janice talks to one of the industry's leading sound experts, Robb Allan, about why sound problems with big stadium gigs can happen.
Our Tuesday Reviewers, Chitra Ramaswamy, Catherine Wilson and Nicky Marr will give us their verdict on the second series of KILLING EVE, the fifth series of BLACK MIRROR and the ANYA GALLACCIO exhibition at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art which features ten thousand red roses.
