James Whale was on Aire during the miners' strike. Has the Aire improved at all?
r3 doesn't need AK...
...not when you've got self-proclaimed King of the BBC, LSP, baptising Lucy ..
Great interview with Adrian Sherwood followed by King LSP demonstrating why he is inimitable - even though his voice has clearly gone and he now purely operates at stream-of-consciousness level. More interviews like this pls.
Shame that the dub sound engineering seemed to fade after the first track.
But viva r3 for the courage to broadcast a little mix of Handel, Knussen, Beethoven, Brahms, Max Romeo, Lee Scratch Perry & Jon Hiseman :cool2:
Did you catch any of DJ LSP's programmes on Beeb6 a few months back ?
That Brighton Fest always throws up too many choices - I was a few miles away in Firle when
the great swiss cheese was playing. Not many years ago it was a choice between Patti Smith playing Firle in a tent
and Tom Brosseau's first UK date - at the Brighton do. Tom won out ..
PS. That R3 pic's a bit gruesome ....
Patti S in the tent
When we lived in Brighton we used to miss most of the mainstream fest ON PURPOSE!

(thanks for Douglas Byng btw I wonder what Maxy R would think...)
Here's Mr 'Scratch' Perry doing Q&A in the weekend Guardian as only he could. What a delightful surprise from them usual suspects - I didn't know whether to feel sorry for the cat or the bird.
Yep Global - see what you mean; though I had this in my mind!

The above Q and A is brilliant. I love LSP. Same school as Sun Ra, Ivor Cutler and Bootsy Collins. That's definitely the tent I'm heading to when we all join in heaven.
I'm currently working my way through VS's 6 progs from mid-May - good to hear her back.

Me too, although you do get 4 LJ's in a week, compared to a Wo3 and a WR so they have twice as much opportunity to hit the mark. I loved that Nils Henrik Asheim & Gjertrud's Gypsy Orchestra playing Chopin's Mazurka Op. 68 No. 2 in A minor but I do have to say I wouldn't mind if FT kicked her addiction to Mr SylviaN.
