I moved here from Berlin a few years back, and had been listening in via the web-stream for a few years already. The shift in time difference always put me in a differed head-space, unexpected music helped concentrate on my attention on projects. I offered to help man the phones at Radiothon, and was suitably impressed to hear someone play Dianogah on Drivetime.

Good people with a serious passion for music in all its forms is great! Being blown away by a new discovery, and having the opportunity to share that with a circle of people, radiating outwards through the city, is such a privilege, and something that I absolutely adore being part of.
It’s really difficult to say. I recently did an all vinyl show – which was amazing fun. It’s great to be able to present songs and musicians that have had a lasting effect on your life, and opened your eyes to divergent sonic possibilities – so I guess an El Ritmo-themed version of Difficult Listening…
