Ruth will giving her view on the latest headlines that are rocking the Catholic church; UK's top cardinal accused of 'inappropriate acts' by priests.

From an unrivalled position he has written a highly informed account of the music business from the 60s to the mid 90s and an insider's view of the careers of many of the most significant players. His insight is less than adulatory and often critical, in particular of the Beatles and Brian Epstein, his friend. During the '60s Geoffrey Ellis was chief Executive of NEMS Enterprises, Brian Epstein's company, at the time when the Beatles became global superstars. His book contains insights and stories, many previously unpublished, concerning the often tortuous business and personal affairs of Epstein, and the aftermath of his death. There is also much about Elton john, of whose management Ellis formed a vital part from the earliest days with Dick James Music and then with John Reid Enterprises, including a trenchant account of the High court action brought by Elton John against Dick James, in the course of which Ellis himself spent two and a half days in the witness box. >>>>>>>>> Also on the guest list is lawyer Nick Cowan who used to manage Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood through his tumultuous years, drugs and there was plenty of them, sex, none stop and not always with the wife and rock and role.
