Up and coming singer songwriter Joe Bygraves came to play for us in the brand new Live Living Room (imaginative name I know) so listen back to hear an original song and a cover! Also, he stuck around to join in with the intros round of Presenter Wars, with admittedly limited success. We also talk songs, 'spoons and the best structure of a sausage sandwich so don't miss out. Plus, as always, some truly cracking music! x

The lovely Surina and Tom from C.A.T.S. Cambridge popped in for a chat at the start of the show before we got on to the complete the lyrics round of presenter wars. As ever, the show features top notch chat and tunes from Editors, Ultravox and Supergrass as well as our own little tribute to the late great Leonard Cohen, writer of Hallelujah. Listen back to hear where the scores lie with only a few challenges left for Pippa and Henry! Ps. I promise to stop being so liberal with the letter 'z' in the blog titles - it started off ironic but now it's just sad,much like the majority of CYB (lol) Radio love xxxx
