I was on Radio 4’s The Music Group last Saturday 17 April, and faced off against the powerhouse that is Janet Street Porter. She thought my choice of Pleasant Valley Sunday by The Monkees was a poor choice. Bah! Must we always take ourselves so darn seriously?

I also made a few embarrassing admissions about my childhood infatuation with Monkees drummer Mickey Dolenz. Ahem.

You only have a few days left to listen to the programme on the BBC’s iPlayer. You can also chill out to the fine selection of the mighty saxophonist and Hip Hop artist Soweto Kinch, “Children of The Night” by Art Blakey and The Jazz Messengers from the album Mosaic.
