Zapsmart: Music on TV and Radio today

6.00am ITV - GMTV
I know, I'm not going to have posted this before it happens. But nobody really wants or needs to see Chipmunk doing his new song in Ben Sheppard's face-hole, do they?

10.35am Channel 4 - JLS Love Jacko
For some reason, JLS list their favourite songs by the man who died before they were born, surely? Tomorrow, Diversity choose their ten favourite impressionist paintings.

2.00 Radio 2 - Great British Songbook Of The 1980s
Together at last: Chris Tarrant and Nik Kershaw.

6.00 Radio 2 - Best Of Maida Vale
That's what they're calling Charles Hazlewood's programme celebrating the studio. And yet the listings promise Jamie Cullum.

7.15 Radio 4 - Front Row
John Wilson should really know better than to build a programme around the "surprise" that women are having hit records.

8.00 ITV2 - Fearne And Peaches Geldof
Fearne Cotton peers into a deep, dark abyss. It's actually a rip-off of that Angel where the exorcised the demon that was afraid of the child it had possessed.

9.00 BBC4 - Sounds Of The 80s
Following straight on from, erm, the Electric Dreams from the 1990s, but you should never look a gift horse wearing eyeliner in the mouth

9.00 ITV - Piers Morgan's Review Of The Year
Well, he helped spoil it, he might as well clean it up. Of course Louis Walsh and Amanda Holden guest on it.

9.00 E4 - The Greatest Songs Of The Noughties
Well, in your opinion, maybe, E4.

10.00 Radio 1 - Rob Da Bank And Friends
Enjoying an early outing, one of the few upsides of the destitute Radio One schedules this week.

11.40 ITV2 - Ghosthunting with The Happy Mondays
"Thank god they commissioned it, I only had 'Jenny Frost: Coconut Shy Operator' left on my pitch list."
