PICK OF TODAY’S RADIO
JUST ONE MORE THING WITH MICHAEL MOSLEY, 9.30AM, RADIO 4
EAT more nuts! They are good for your brain, good for your waistline, and full of fibre, fats and nutrients. People who eat plenty of walnuts, according to some research, live a year longer than people who don’t, and regular nut nibblers have better short-term memories than nut refuseniks. As he continues his informative series, the Daily Mail’s Michael Mosley is joined by dietitian and nutritionist Dr Sze-Yen Tan, from Deakin University in Australia, to walk us along a shell-strewn path to better health.
SAM HUGHES (1PM, SCALA RADIO) brings live music to her afternoon shows on a regular basis, and today she’s joined by Maya Youssef (pictured), a virtuoso of the qanun — a zither-like instrument that has a history going back to ancient Assyria. Maya, who is based in the UK and has played at the Proms, tells Sam about the history of the qanun, then fills the studio with music that is rooted in the ancient, yet is thoroughly modern.
