Show Notes

Graham has been away for the weekend, visiting Kettle's Yard, a Cambridge contemporary art gallery, to view the latest retrospective by Chinese artist, Ai WeiWei - and unexpectedly meet him too. Back north, he revelled in revisiting the live glories of Echo & The Bunnymen and Groove Armada in Leeds. Charles, meanwhile, has attended the unmasking of Barry Humphries as Australia's master of comical alter egos peeled back the covers on a new UK tour in York at 88. With sadness, Graham and Charles end with the death, aged 62, of inspirational Harrogate gallery owner, curator, artist and musician Andrew Stewart, whose creative spirit and talent for sharing his taste in contemporary art will be much missed.
