Yes, it's Superbowl Sunday in America, and that - for those of you not within the confines of the USA - means an inordinate amount of tortilla chips and beer, outrageous commercials, and a competition between the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers. 

So you have a choice today between listsening to the England Swings show, which begins at 6:00 p.m. ET (close to the game kickoff time) or listening to endless commentators natter about the players while the game is going on. 

May we suggest a compromise? Kill the sound on the game, and tune into the England Swings show. Use it as a soundtrack for football, and you might suddenly find both the game and the radio show are enhanced! 

We've got a pro lineup today for you to hear : new songs by British Sea Power, You Me At Six, Clare Maguire, and Modestep, for instance. Carefully chosen older tunes by Procol Harum, Fairport Convention, and some really old stuff from Alma Cogan. Plus lots more music, and our usual features :

The Fab Four Freakout : The Beatles do Buddy Holly, and do it well.
UK Music News : An icon of movie music composing passes away.
Top 5 Countdown : the most popular songs in the UK TODAY, with a new number one!

Don't forget - it's 6:00 p.m. ET :

In Northern Virginia : Cox and Verizon digital cable channel 37
In Reston, Virginia : Comcast channel 27
Anywhere else in the world :

Chips, dip, and musical history, all on tap today on the England Swings show!
