Clive Anderson and guests with an eclectic mix of conversation, music and comedy. He's toured with Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochrane, Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis. No wonder then that guitar legend Duane Eddy received a MOJO Icon Award this week. He talks to Clive about his career as 'King of Twang'. Clive is joined by actress Juliet Stevenson who's trying to restore the almost lost art of live drama on television with her appearance in Mark Ravenhill's 'Ghost Story' part of a series of new plays for Sky Arts Playhouse: Live. Creator of Reginald Perrin, comic writer David Nobbs talks about his new novel 'Obstacles to Young Love'; a story of love, faith and taxidermy. Surf's up! Jon Holmes wave watches with Gavin Pretor-Pinney author of 'The Wavewatcher's Companion' which explores the undulations that surround us, from the rippling beats of our hearts to Mexican waves in stadiums. And there's retro comedy from The Fitzrovia Radio Hour who create their own live sound effects in the studio. With music from folk singer songwriter Seth Lakeman who performs his single 'Tiny World' from his album 'Hearts & Minds'. And from Manchester's 'I am Kloot' who celebrate their 10th Anniversary with the launch of their Guy Garvey produced album 'Sky At Night'. Notes:- Producer: Cathie Mahoney.
