Matinee Idle

Monday 8 February 2016, with Simon Morris & Phil O'Brien

Jean Jacques Burnel

3:05 PM. Punk pioneers The Stranglers have been going for 40 years. 40 years since they started in the sleepy Surrey town of Guildford. Simon Morris talks to fellow bass-player and Royal Guildford Grammar Old Boy, Jean-Jacques Burnel.

Nicole Atkins

2:15 PM. Phil O'Brien's been a fan of American singer Nicole Atkins for… well, forever. He particularly loves her work with Postmodern Jukebox. Here, he chats with Nicole live on the line from Nashville Tennessee.

Walking In Guildford

1:30 PM. Simon grew up in Guildford, the least rock'n'roll town in the world. Or is it? There's the Stranglers, and Camel, and, um, DJ Tony Blackburn, "journalist" Piers Morgan, Terry Jones from the Pythons - not to mention P G Wodehouse. Maybe it's time to revisit the old town…
