I wanted to wait until all the shows were available until I posted about my great friend Alannah Chance’s amazing achievement called New Weird Britain which is a 4 episode documentary series on BBC Radio 4. Alannah has worked really hard on this series which involved doing a ton of research into the UK DIY and contemporary music scenes today. The shows are only half an hour each so obviously not everything can be covered but I think these shows do a fantastic job capturing a bit about what’s happening out and about. I hope people listening will be encouraged to do a bit of research themselves after hearing them and will perhaps do something like visit us at Tor Festival in Todmorden, our little corner of this weird island, which is discussed in the second episode. Anyway, great job Alannah, keep at it!
