This week Tom features an interview with two special guests: Ian Darrington, the leader and Director of the Wigan international jazz festival, and also the Puppini Sisters.

The Puppini Sisters feature Marcella Puppini , Stephanie O’Brian,  Kate Mullings. They all met at the same jazz school. Their backgrounds were very different as Kate sang in heavy metal band called Killed in Action, whilst Michelle Puppini had recorded a dance hit called Revolution after serving time in a punk group. Stephanie came from a classical, choir and violin background and was making her name for herself as a jazz singer. They formed as a group 2004.

Also featured in this weeks show was music from Perry como, David Bowie, Wigan Youth Orchestra featuring Bobby Shew, Puppini Sisters, Marcella Puppini, Clare teal, and Artie Shaw.
