Lifelines : Wednesdays 10 - 11.30 am on Ipswich Community Radio

Postcards_Image_sides_4.jpg

Douglas Coombes of Ipswich community radio asked me onto Lifelines, his weekly talk and music slot. I ended up being in the studio with Julia Devonshire, Ipswich art project officer. We talked about the joint show of Chinwe Chukwuogo-Roy and Gareth Bayliss in the old Ipswich art school building, her object exchange project and how that connected with Such Stuff at the Minories. Was a really interesting morning.

I love radio.

It's my imaginary/imaginative friend in the studio. What also makes Lifelines really worth a listen is the playlists, Douglas gets the guests to choose them and I heard a really beautiful reading my Roger McGough. Here's my playlist, which I got carried away with and we only had time to listen to four of them :

Miles Davis : "Nuit sur les Champs-Elysees (take 2)" from Ascenseur pour l'Echafaud. Little Stevie Wonder : "I wish."

Now that's what I call poetry, and the best bass line ever :

Smokin cigarettes and writin somethin nasty on the wall

Teacher sends you to the principle office down the hall

You grow up and learn that kind of thing aint right

But while you were doin it, it sure felt outta sight

I wish those days, could, come back once more

Why did those days ev-er have to go

I wish those days, could, come back once more

Why did those days ev-er have to go, cause I loved em so.......

Antonio Vivaldi : Concerto no. 2 in G minor.

US3 : "Cantaloup (Flip Fantasia)" from Hand on the Torch

Annie Lennox : "Every time we say goodbye" from Red hot and blue.

Cannonball Adderley : "Autumn leaves" from Somethin else.

JS Bach, played by Glenn Gould : "Chromatic fantasy & fugue in D minor"

Giovanni Battista Pergolesi : "Stabat mater dolorosa"

Howlin Wolf : "Highway 49" from the Howlin Wolf London sessions

Captain Beefheart : "Yellow brick Road: from Safe as Milk

There's loads more on the list but we only had time for three. Lifelines on Ipswich community radio is definitely worth a listen. It's on between 10 - 11.30am on Wednesdays.
