A wide range of global and local music. Frequently, live music from excellent local and visiting musicians.

Why do you like this music?
I like exploring different rhythms, melodies and cultures. The music played is very different from commercial music.

What is the format of your show?
I try and start with world music then move over into more folky stuff.

Why should we listen to your show?
Widen your interests and experience music from the other side of the world, music that isn’t the norm.

How did your show come about?
I started the show after my daughter suggested I should be on the radio because I have a wide interest in music and being bossy she persuaded me! 

What goes on behind the scenes in the studio?
Well, you’ve got to make a party of it!
