The Week in Radio: Relief from the silly season with a startling slice

We're now into week two of the mid-summer period known as "the radio doldrums." If you need to know more about this annual event, may I please refer you to last week's column in which I whined at length about holidaying presenters leaving their shows in the hands of imbeciles, and about all the dreadful-sounding programmes I had declined to listen to for fear that I might slip into a radio-induced coma.

My fantasy band: Tinie Tempah

He's a very honest musician. Last year I watched VH1's "Storytellers", which focused on his album '808s & Heartbreak'. It will stick with me for the rest of my life. He allows you to go into his life and understand a little bit of what it's like to be Kanye West. He's not afraid to lie on the floor and stare at the ceiling or get involved with the crowd. People seem to love to hate him, but I think that controversy is what makes an artist great.
