A mixed bag of guests this week: author and broadcaster Andrew Marr; actress Sarah Jessica Parker and actor Anthony Head. So not that mixed after all...
Brilliantly, this week's band is Yazoo (or Yaz, if you are American and have difficulty with syllables).
198. Ray Winstone, The Osmonds, Neil Diamond.

Chirpy Cockney geezer, Ray Winstone, does the Lambeth walk into the studio to discuss jellied eels, Doodlebugs and boxing grannies from the east end. Gawd bless 'em. Actually, he'll probably talk about a new film or something... The Osmonds - all 9 of them, give their first British interview in 25 years. 9 Osmonds - that's 288 teeth. Seems like a lot more... Music to please your Mum - and mine, from golden-tonsilled Neil Diamond.
199. John Barrowman, Kirsty Young, Mark Wahlberg, Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber, Black Kids.

The ubiquitous John Barrowman returns to talk about his favourite Nancy (you can add your own punchline). Music from Black Kids, whose début song title takes longer to say than it takes to sing.
