Last week saw the broadcast of this radio show I hosted with author Gerry King on the essential Resonance fm. The second half of the show is a performed reading of Gerry’s short story The Stealerant taken from his book Smoke and Other Tales
Last year I was asked to shoot some short promo videos asking people what they thought about Resonance 104.4fm. As a result I ended up with Stewart Lee and Daniel Kitson in a toilet backstage at the Bloomsbury Theatre on Valentines Day.
Went for a wander round Leyton with Neil Denny for his brilliant Little Atoms podcast then recorded an interview in my shed.
As we prepare for a summer walking and recording the second series of Ventures and Adventures in Topography here’s a short video from the studio broadcast of he last episode of series one in December 2009. You can download the podcast of this episode here
Among the suggested topics for series 2 we’re planning one exploring Leytonstone and Wanstead probably following the course of the Filly Brook (or Fillebrook).
Malcolm Hopkins from Housman’s Bookshop and producer/ sound artist Nick Hamilton (who made the rather brilliant Foot and Mouth series) have just started a new show called Lost Steps, on Resonance 104.4fm.
I’ve nicked this blurb off their website:
“Lost Steps is a series of weekly radio programmes, exploring lost London.
Over the weeks, Malcolm Hopkins will be inviting a spectrum of invited guests to discuss and appreciate aspects of London literature and culture we seldom get to hear about; seldom reaches the mainstream media, and is often neglected as time passes by. London’s history is steeped with obscure and often clandestine reference.”
There have already been some fascinating broadcasts which you can catch-up on here: http://www.loststeps.org.uk/Broadcasts.php
I’ll be joining them for an episode in November which I had better prepare for I suppose.
