Monday Matters: James Bamford meets Edward Snowden

James Bamford Edward Snowden

On Monday Matters tonight after 9pm Jason Mccrossan will speak to the best selling author and journalist James Bamford – who flew to Moscow last year to interview former National Security Agency employee Edward Snowden who leaked thousands of top secret documents to newspaper groups in America and the UK.

Our featured artist is Paul Simon – however, we did him last year so have opened it up to you to suggest who you’d like to hear four songs from – in the running is The Carpenters (Kyra’s choice); War of the Worlds (Jason’s choice) – and Chris DeBurgh if no-one comes up with anything better.

After 8pm in our Night-Time News report – Psychologist Jo Hemmings – talks to about a survey by the internet provider Plusnet on the time of the week when we feel unhappiest.

Kyra has this weeks music news including news about Lulu’s 2016 tour, Ed Sheeran and Kanye West’s appearance on USA X-Factor.

After 9pm we have another Downton Abbey update with MC Jezza Fellows.
