Verity Sharp At Home With Robert Wyatt - Late Junction 17th October 2017

VERITY SHARP AT HOME WITH ROBERT WYATT - LATE JUNCTION 17.10.17 (320kbs-m4a/207mb/1hr30mins)
BBC Radio 3 broadcast: 17th October 2017


Verity Sharp heads to the edgelands of Lincolnshire for a special programme recorded at home with one of the most distinctive voices in British songwriting, Robert Wyatt. A pivotal figure in the alternative music scene of the last 50 years, Wyatt has had a profound influence on the history of British music. But he's also one of its most affable story tellers. Over a plate of local plum cake, Wyatt talks Verity through some of the music that has helped shape him as an artist and the stories that go with it. With the ease of someone who is as comfortable reciting nonsense verse as discussing the Syrian crisis, he swings from surrealist verse by Hilaire Beloc to the time when Bjork came to visit him in Louth.

Robert Wyatt came to prominence in the late 1960s as the drummer with the jazz-infused psychedelic band Soft Machine before a debilitating accident in 1973 left him paralysed from the waist down. He went on to make some of the most startling music in his repertoire, abandoning the drum kit in favour of piano and a haunting vocal style. He became known for his unique voice and a playful way with words - qualities that run through his eight solo albums, which veer from the fiercely political to the childlike and surreal. Although probably most famed for his vocal part on the Elvis Costello-penned hit 'Shipbuilding', Robert Wyatt's influence stretches far beyond that, having worked with American jazz composer Carla Bley, Icelandic artistic powerhouse Bjork and Japanese composer Ryuichi Sakamoto as well as jazz musicians fleeing apartheid South Africa, and long-time friend Brian Eno.

Over the course of an hour and a half he looks back on the last 50 years of his life as an artist and an avid music collector, picking out selections dear to his heart - from his love of British tenor Peter Pears to his fanaticism for early jazz singers and Ivor Cutler's absurdism. Verity also brings some of her own choices, sparking discussions around British surrealism, his dislike of the 'wobbly singers' of opera, his undying love for life partner Alfie and a frank conversation about his battle with depression, before giving us a quick piano lesson to boot. An intimate portrait of a truly British voice with a love of the absurd and an ear for the unusual.

Corridors Of Sound - 2. Episode 2

CORRIDORS OF SOUND - 2. EPISODE 2 (320kbs-m4a/126mb/55mins)
BBC Radio 6 Music broadcast: 5th October 2017


Cerys Matthews takes a historical tour of sound through the BBC's Maida Vale Studios, one of the music industry's best-loved buildings.

Maida Vale has been a launch pad to stardom for young aspiring musicians and actors.

Lead a musician along the main corridor of Maida Vale studios for the first time and you can almost feel the excitement and trepidation bubbling up inside them; the recognition of the great sounds that have been created inside the studios weighing heavily on their shoulders. Arguably more artists have walked through Maida Vale's Art Deco front door than even the legendary Abbey Road.

Cerys meets the history makers past and present. As well as encountering soon-to-be-famous performers, she bumps into regular visitors of the studio Johnny Marr, Rick Wakeman and Jools Holland. She introduces the talented people who help make the dreams come true - the sound engineers. These unsung heroes, not only mix the session, but have been known on occasion to give the odd band member a quick singing lesson or an emergency guide to tuning guitars.

As Cerys wanders around this well loved but ramshackle building, she immerses herself in a typical day at Maida Vale. In Studio 1, home of the BBC Symphony Orchestra, she meets the people who've played a key role in the orchestra's history before finding out what really happened in the legendary Radiophonic Workshop.

Just along the corridor is Studio 4, most famous for its rock sessions. Here Cerys reminisces about the sessions that helped change her fortunes, meets a new band that are at MV for the first time and talks to the engineers and producers that make it all happen.

First broadcast on Radio 2 to mark the 75th anniversary of Maida Vale Studios and repeated to complement 6 Music Live.
