Albarn building

The idea of new year guest Today programme editors is that you learn something new about them, and Damon Albarn's stint in the chair this morning provided just such to an extent. Admittedly commissioning a piece on "Mali's refreshing approach to recycling" almost sounds like something someone taking the piss out of Albarn's worldliness would come up with, but elsewhere, who knew he'd be into table tennis? Albarn joined our premiere ping-pong progenitors training for the Olympics, while elsewhere newly appointed Lib Dem advisor Brian Eno put forward the case for nuclear disarmament, The Good The Bad And The Queen collaborator Eslam Jawaad talks to refugee Iraqi musicians, Albarn's manager Chris Morrison charts the music industry and thought for the day is provided by John Cooper Clarke.
