A Tea Pad, a Copper Bottom and Ms Lauren Bacall

(Radio Reporting  with Russell)
The Beeb’s radio output in the first week of the new year looks promising. Saturday (Jan 3) has a reassuring sense of normality about it; Jazz Record Requests is in its usual place (Radio 3, 5:00pm), with Jazz Line-Up being mucked about again in the schedules (opera ‘Live from the Met’ taking precedence) – tune in at 8:30pm (more from Joshua Redman) and Geoffrey Smith’s Jazz at midnight takes a further look at the Basie band. Meanwhile, Clive Anderson’s guests on Loose Ends (Radio 4, 6:15pm) will be entertained by one of Heaton’s finest – Rob Heron and the Tea Pad Orchestra.
Sunday’s evening schedule on BBC Radio 4 Extra includes Wallsend lad Gordon Sumner  discussing creativity with Guy Raz in an edition of TED Radio Hour (7:00pm), originally broadcast on America’s National Public Radio. Later (9:00pm) Lauren Bacall is castaway on Desert Island Discs Revisited (in conversation with Roy Plomley in 1984). Monday is a day to get the blues; Paul Jones (the Peter Pan of the music) plays blues and r ‘n’ b, old and new (Radio 2, 7:00pm), then at ten o’clock the first of six programmes first broadcast in 2013 – Hugh Lawrie’s Blues Changes – looks at Jarrow lad Alan Price’s Changes. The late night survey of contemporary jazz – Jazz  on 3 – can be found over on Radio 3 at the  usual time (11:00pm).
Jamie Cullum (Tuesday, Radio 2, 7:00pm) continues to spread the J word and at 10:00pm piano player and broadcaster Jools Holland fronts the first of two programmes devoted to Chris Barber (originally broadcast in 2011 and again in 2013). Finally, on Thursday Jan 8 (Radio 2), Leo Green talks to Van Morrison in the first of four programmes. Van the Man will be 70 in August!
