My show on BBC Radio 6 is known for being eclectic and I’m always looking for interesting recordings. They don’t have to be conventional: I’ve had whales that sound like humans and cats that sing. The theory behind my choices has always been simple.
I’m debating this subject and talking about the Good Life Experience festival in this week’s Radio Times. It’s out now so grab a copy.
