Amol Rajan is to welcome Dawn French and Groove Armada on the Radio 2 Breakfast Show this Friday.

Dawn French, the comedian, actor, writer and national treasure chats to Amol about her new novel. ‘Because of You’ is about about mothers and daughters, love and loss, mistakes and regret. It’s a book about nature and nurture. Ultimately, it’s a book about what makes us who we are. Following her wonderful bestsellers ‘A Tiny Bit Marvellous’, ‘Oh Dear Silvia’ and ‘According to Yes’, ‘Because Of You’ is Dawn French’s stunning new book, told with her signature humour, warmth and so much love.

Dawn has appeared in some of the UK’s most long running, cherished and celebrated shows, including French and Saunders, Murder Most Horrid, The Vicar of Dibley, Jam and Jerusalem, Lark Rise to Candleford, and more recently, Roger and Val Have Just Got In.

Groove Armada have recorded a brand new exclusive session for the show. With three UK Top 10 hits, three Grammy nominations and a succession of classics such as ‘Superstylin’, ‘Song 4 Mutya (Out of Control)’, ‘I See You Baby’, ‘Paper Romance’and ‘At The River’, Groove Armada are one of the most influential forces in dance music. Now the duo – Tom Findlay and Andy Cato – add a new chapter to their storied history with the release of the new album ‘Edge of the Horizon’. It’s been ten years since Groove Armada released their landmark album ‘Black Light’ and now they’re back with ‘Edge of the Horizon’.

Along with Tina Daheley on news, Richie Anderson on travel and Mike Williams on sport, he and the team have the best start to your morning. With headlines, tunes chosen by listeners, and more music that you can shake a glitterball at!

There’s also a daily Pause For Thought and listeners on the line, as Amol entertains the nation with fun for the family!
