At 10:40 am we hear the final part of the series on percussion with Mark Robinson and this week Mark calls it “All the Rest” – instruments percussionists play that we haven’t heard already. The whole series of 6 episodes will be podcast after today’s show.
Last week saw the 200th anniversary of the death of Jane Austen. To mark the event, at 11:00 am, I am joined by Austen scholar, Ruth Wilson. Our conversation looks at who Jane Austen really was and why she has such enduring appeal.
Music is all about Jane Austen: soundtracks from movies of her novels and music by musicians we know she loved.
Do join me!
