Sunny Side Up

This week on Centrelinked it was about snap and crackle and not just pop as we celebrated all things breakfast. From coffee to croissants, tea to toast, muffins to muesli, we covered it all in song - with a few more interesting alternatives hidden away like a plastic toy at the bottom of a cereal packet.

Special thanks go to Pink Floyd for Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast which provided over an hour's worth of backing music, chuntering and breakfast preparing noises.
