Shaun's Eighth Anniversary on Breakfast, plus Mark Knopfler
Shaun Keaveny

Thursday sees Shaun 8th Anniversary on the Breakfast Show. He celebrates by welcoming the one guest he's been trying to track down for all these years - Mark Knopfler to the show. Mark will be chatting about his eighth solo album - 'Tracker' which features 11 new Knopfler songs inspired by a wide range of subjects including Beryl Bainbridge and Basil Bunting. They'll chat about the album and up coming tour and Keaveny's lifelong desire to meet the great man.

All this plus Matt Everritt joins with the latest Music News and we're after your anniversary Earworms before 8am.

Anyone knows if this programme is live or prerecorded?

I only tuned in about ten minutes ago, but what a lovely interview!   It was so touching to hear about the fan letter that Shaun wrote to DS and Mark when he was 15 years old and it was returned to him with "Gone Away" written on the unopened envelope, unknown to MK!   Shaun showed MK the letter and Mark read it, live on the radio!   I'm afraid I was welling up at that point!   I hope I can listen again!    :)

EDIT:  The letter is still on the website, read by MK!

Just finished listening to all of Mark's interview and it was one of the best I have heard.  It was such a warm and relaxed atmosphere and I agree with the visitor that talking to a real fan makes the difference.   :)

Mark just mentioned a new song 'Matchstick Man' when talking about new album.
Even though presenter a huge fan, Mark answers still 95% predictable, sadly.
