Broadcasting House

Bit of a radio update…. On Wednesday I visited one of my favorite buildings in London. It’s BBC’s Broadcasting House an amazingly ship-like Art Deco beauty a couple of hundred meters from Oxford Circus tube station.  

I was there to record an interview about the recent commission between Shetland poet Jen Hadfield and myself for Radio 3’s poetry show ‘The Verb’ presented by Ian McMillan. The show actually aired last night (Friday 20th) but it’s available to stream here for another week. 

In other radio news the drama / documentry ‘NINA BLACK’ which uses my last album ‘The Forest and the Sea’ for it’s sound FX and music has been shortlisted for the New York Radio Festival and is currently featured on the Third Coast Festival where you can hear the programme. It’s an amazing story of a woman plagued since childhood by complicated neuropsychiatric disorders.

Take care radio lovers,
