Up From The Stacks

Up From The Stacks

The Exeter Library show: a wilfully diverse collision of eclectic music, with discursive interludes and literary asides. Pat and Jez make regular expeditions down into the cavernous stacks, excavating treasures from the extensive music collections to be found in the secret spaces below.

All music played on the programme can be found in some form or another in Exeter Library, or in Devon libraries beyond. Each time around we have a second-half theme and a box-set of the week. There’s also news from the library and regular guests, including the odd visit from our St Thomas and Pinhoe library correspondent Lee Rawlings.

What brought you to Phonic FM?

We started out doing a show for the Oxfam music and arts shop for which we both volunteer, playing music which passed through.

What does Phonic FM mean to you?

An eclectic selection of music and community programming put together by presenters who really care.

What do you do when you’re not on Phonic FM?

I (that’s me, Jez) work at the library (Phonic FM’s neighbour) and Pat and I both volunteer at the Oxfam music and arts shop, where we head after finishing our show.

How do radio presenters do it?

With immaculate timing.
