The Wonderful World of MPS

This week we take a look at the German jazz record label “MPS”. And we are joined by a man with an extensive knowledge and collection of the music in that of James Spencer, who this week I have allowed to program the music for the show from his personal collection. Also on the show, the passing of Irish actress Maureen O’Hara. We examine “The Art Of Doing Very Little”, and find you some cool parties to attend across the globe.
