The Real Tuesday Weld on BBC’s The Echo Chamber
The Echo Chamber is a beautiful, evocative BBC Radio Four program made by producer Tim Dee and presenter Paul Farley. Each episode features poetry and music around a particular theme. The first episode of the new series is ‘Extinctions’* and features sounds from our X-Ray Audio Project
You can listen again HERE on BBC I player until the end of December
And I provided the music for this week’s episode ‘The Knowledge’ on the subject of London taxi drivers. It airs the Sunday at 16.30 on BBC Radio 4 and then on I player HERE
* Paul Farley listens to old and new poetry of extinction one hundred years after the death of Martha, the last ever passenger pigeon. With poems from Fleur Adcock, Sean O’Brien, W.S. Merwin and David Harsent and the sounds of X-ray audio, the samizdat music of the Soviet Union that used black-market plates of skulls and ribcages to capture the beginnings of rock and roll.
