RA­DIO CHOICE

-

ELVIS COSTELLO (pic­tured) reads from UN­FAITH­FUL MU­SIC AND DIS­AP­PEAR­ING INK (RA­DIO 4, 9.45AM (FM), 12.30AM), his new mem­oir about his life in the mu­sic busi­ness. In this open­ing in­stal­ment, Elvis takes a trip to the Ham­mer­smith Palais, where his fa­ther, the trum­pet player Ross McManus, had played with the Joe Loss Orchestra.

HOW DOES THAT MAKE YOU FEEL? (RA­DIO 4, 10.45AM, 7.45PM), the drily funny se­ries set in the con­sult­ing room of a long-suf­fer­ing psy­chother­a­pist, re­turns. There’s a lot of good stuff in this se­ries, though the usu­ally ex­cel­lent Roger Al­lam sounds as though he’s just read­ing his script, not act­ing the part.

HOAGY CARMICHAEL crops up in old films, of­ten

as not play­ing the pi­anist in a sa­loon bar. He may have been a dif­fi­cult man to work with, but he was also a fine mu­si­cian and com­poser, with an en­gag­ing, laid-back style of singing. To­day, COM­POSER OF THE WEEK (RA­DIO 3, 12 NOON, 6.30PM) be­gins a week-long cel­e­bra­tion of Hoagy’s work.

BE­HIND CLOSED DOORS (RA­DIO 4, 2.15PM) is the first of three le­gal dra­mas fea­tur­ing Lon­don bar­ris­ter Re­becca Ny­man. To­day, she fol­lows the case of a po­lice of­fi­cer who feels she’s been hounded out of her job by sex­ist bul­lies.
