Zapsmart: Music on TV and Radio today

The last installment of the festive TV and radio guide, then. You're on your own from tomorrow:

7.00am Radio 1 - Chris Moyle's All Day Breakfast
Twelve hours of Chris Moyles. Is there anything more designed to make you curse Marconi's name for inventing the radio?

Noon Radio 2 - Patrick Kielty
Oh, yes. There is.

7.00 Sky Arts 1 - The Roy Orbison Story
Sky Arts spends the day flipping between Johnny Cash and Roy Orbison programming. When Orbison died, David Gedge made a joke about how it was a shame because he'd always wanted to see a guide dog on stage. Turns out Gedge had just assumed only a blind man would wear such thick dark shades all the time. This anecdote doesn't appear in this programme.

8.00 Planet Rock - Nicky Horne's Chain
Songs connected to each other. Not like a programme made from a Radcliffe & Maconie feature, then.

9.00 Radio 4 - Big In Samoa
Comedy play about a long-forgotten album being taken to people's hearts online.

9.00 BBC 4 - Guitar Heroes At The BBC
Tonight including New York Dolls and the Sabbath.

9.00 Dave - This Is Spinal Tap
I'm struggling to find anything today. Can you tell?

10.00 Dave Ja Vu - This Is Spinal Tap
Really, really struggling.

10.00 Radio 3 - Not The Messiah
Monty Python inspired comic oratorio featuring all the living Pythons. Except Cleese. And some actual musicians.

10.50 BBC4 - The Faces: Sight And Sound In Concert
For the best experience, place your speakers either side of your TV.

11.35 BBC4 - Guitar Heroes At The BBC
Admittedly, this will be repeated until the Lib Dems form a government, but is this the best time to debut a new collection? Features Santana and Knopfler. Oh, fair enough.

12.35am BBC4 - Rock Goes To College: Tom Petty
RGTC, the most successful Whistle Test spin-off until Mark Ellen Loves Chachi.

Nicky Horne used to do the chain on Capital in London back in the late 70's early 80's. They nicked it from him not the other way round.
