The Arts Desk Radio Show 8

Our fortnightly shows on NTS Live Radio have begun!

Fimber Bravo's steel pan magic is prominently featured in the show

The Arts Desk has quietly been testing the waters in the world of live radio, thanks to the kind people at NTS Live who invited Joe and Peter to do a fortnightly show for them. Having got into the swing of things, they're ready to open up the archives of the show starting with this week's episode. Here, Joe was flying solo, as Peter was - as is his wont - out on a research trip in more exotic climes. So there's less talk and more music, but what music it is!
