At The Anfield Wrap we try to do more than just football occasionally. Football is a major part of our lives and yours too. We know that. But there is more to life than just football and there is more to football supporters lives than just football too.
 
Therefore, between the free feed and TAW Player we are looking to occasionally interview people from Liverpool whose lives are of interest to us, who may have things to say or insights into culture or industry we might not have thought of before. Basically - people who get our attention.
 
Our first of these is opera singer (mezzo-soprano) Jennifer Johnston. Jennifer grabbed the attention of Neil Atkinson and John Gibbons and so we decided to get her up the darkened steps of Motel and sit down with her to ask her about her life, her work, how the two intertwine.
 
We're made up with the outcome and we are putting it out as a show for everyone to hear about the universality of art in our lives, about the importance of access to art for all and about how crossing over shouldn't mean weakening what you do.
 
We hope you are made up too and you find the time to listen to this conversation.

John Gibbons hosts as Stephanie Heneghan and Adam Melia cover Neil Atkinson's absence. He's stuck in a field. This may well be part of Stephanie Heneghan's excellent mood but 3pm baths could also have played a part.

There is all the usual - everyone's weekends and what they have been up to. Glastonbury talk too. But more than anything 10 great songs. What more can you ask for?

Back by popular demand, it's our Glastonbury special. Neil Atkinson, John Gibbons, Stephanie Hengehan, Adam Melia and Mo Stewart all pick their ones to watch for all three days if you are heading to Pilton or just watching TV.

Mo is well into double figures on Glastonbury appearances so he gives his tips on enjoyment or survival as well as tales from the trenches. Adam and Neil also run through things they have learned from experience and error. 

The rain is bad and the traffic sounds a nightmare. So pull over in your camper van, get the bus driver to whack on The Rider, or just laugh into your PJs over images of people trying to push trolley's through mud. There are 15 great songs to enjoy this week, all to be featured at the farm. Enjoy!
