April 2012 saw Shaun celebrate 5 years as the Breakfast Show presenter on BBC Radio 6 Music. The actual anniversary was on the 2nd but, what with budget restraints and lack of planning, we thought we'd wait a month until everyone has been paid to put together a REAL CELEBRATION!

Expect a very special Song Of Praise caller on the phone, a selection of 6 Music Presenters will also be thanking Shaun for his 5 years of service and we'll have some live Middle Age Shout Outs. Plus Mary Epworth is in the studio to play her new single 'Long Gone' and we chat with writer and comedian Charlie Higson.

Add to this our usual Friday staples: a poem from Murray Lachlan Young and Prof Brian Cox talking science and that, all set to a kicking playlist as you've come to expect from BBC Radio 6 Music.

After 9am today Stewart Francis joins Shaun to chat about his 'Outstanding in his Field' tour.

Stewart moved to the UK from his native 'Canadia' three years ago. It wasn't long before he established himself as one the best stand-ups working here right now, performing superbly on television and touring some of the country's largest venues throughout 2010. Stewart loves living this side of the pond but has noticed some of our oddest pastimes, he said: 'What's the deal with trainspotters. I spotted 47 of the losers the other day'.

An accomplished actor, writer and comedian, Stewart has performed his slick, perfectly timed wealth of gags all over the world from the US to Kilkenny and Aspen to South Africa. He has already stared in BBC's Mock The Week, Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow and Live At The Apollo.

Tuesday sees actor Joe Dempsie, who is currently appearing in Game of Thrones, joining Shaun after 9am. He started his TV career playing Chris in the original cast of Skins on C4. After leaving the drama in series two, he has since starred in some of the best and most original TV dramas this country has produced, most recently the award-winning This Is England 86 and acclaimed British horror series, The Fades.

Joe trained at the Nottingham TV Workshop which has produced some of the best acting talent working in film and TV today - Samantha Morton, Toby Kebbell, Vicky McClure, Lauren and Michael Socha to name a few.

Joe has just finished working with Krystoffer Nyholm, director of The Killing - arguably Norway's most successful drama which received global critical acclaim last year. Murder will be a one-off primetime drama coming to the BBC this Autumn that will mark Krystoffer's directorial debut in the UK.

All this plus a rib-tickling satirical romp through the day's news and events, to the perfect morning soundtrack for anyone music-lover; from northern soul to new folk; rock 'n' roll to indie disco.
