On Monday's Backchat: we're talking about the latest developments in the extradition bill controversy. We'll be joined as usual by a panel of guests. But as always we also want to know what you think. Leave a message here and we’ll try and read it out on air. Or you can send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call us on 23388266.

This coming Saturday afternoon at 12.05, join us for some Good Ol' Country. For the first time in nearly 20 years Radio 3 brings you the best in real-deal American country music. We’re very excited to welcome its host too, who apart from being one quarter of the amazing Metro Vocal Group, has lived and breathed country music since he was small. Michael Lance was born in Lincoln, Nebraska, and raised on beef, corn, and potatoes. At a young age, he travelled North America in his family’s Country and Western band, and developed a love for those great story driven songs sung by some of the greatest story tellers of all time. Music has always been in his blood, literally, and he hopes his selection will make you stand up, find a partner, and dance the two-step to some....Good Ol' Country. (Saturdays, 12.05pm-1pm, Facebook: @nebraskamike)

Radio 3 now brings you a whole new Saturday evening experience! After the news at 6, join Mengzy. She’s a musician, a club DJ, and is currently studying for a PhD in electronic music. Through interviews with renowned producers and performers, interspersed with some great mixing, she takes you on a wonderful musical journey in The Breakdown. Stay with us after 7 as Simon Willson takes you back ... way back, with two hours of the greats in Soul Sensations. And, after 9 Todd Harding is still rocking, but this time right into to the “Me” Decade, in Strictly Seventies.
It’s Father’s Day on Sunday, at the end of a tumultuous week, so the Sunday Escape will be doing its best to reflect that with Paul playing (possibly tenuous) dad-related records, which might be just Dire Straits but if you have any better suggestions then do message the show, as well as honouring some famous dads such as Darth Vader.
In addition to that Paul will of course be looking at all the week’s new music, with new releases from Bat For Lashes, Mattiel, The Raconteurs, Jordan Rakei and Bill Callahan, plus the release of Madonna’s latest album and indeed latest reinvention entitled “Madame X”. There’ll also be a run through of whatever else Paul has been listening to lately, as well as album of the week.
As if that wasn’t enough, Paul will also be looking at the developments coming out of E3 this week, and of course whatever biscuits happen to come his way. Tune in from 9.30am to 1pm! (Sundays, 9.30am-1pm).
