Harlem Timeline - 4. Part 4

HARLEM TIMELINE - 4. PART 4 (320kbs-m4a/128mb/56mins)
BBC Radio 6 Music broadcast: 19th September 2017


Soweto Kinch concludes his personal journey to discover the story of Harlem, its music, politics and culture.

He meets record producer Paul Winley to discover how doo-wop became hip hop. Kurtis Blow and Zulu Jeff explain how hip hop spread to every corner of Harlem and Soweto also encounters break dancers and DJs.

Soweto sees that Harlem's cultural future is assured, with a visit to the National Jazz Museum in Harlem which conserves the rich musical legacy of the area. He also joins in a jam session at Bill's Place, a venue styled after the speakeasies of 1920s and 30s Harlem.

The journey ends at the marvellously preserved art deco Lenox Lounge, scene of many a recent movie, where jazz and blues remain a central part of Harlem's rich cultural atmosphere.

In his second journey into Harlem's history, Soweto Kinch finds out about the rich gospel tradition, explores the art, music and poetry of the harlem Renaissance, and traces the story of jazz from swing to bebop. He visits the place where politician Marcus Garvey addressed the crowds from a soapbox, and finds out where African American thinker and reformer W. E. B DuBois lived and worked. He hears about the legendary Savoy Ballroom, and the late night clubs like Minton's and the Uptown House where Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie created a new style of jazz. Finally as the 1940s progress, rhythm and blues arrives on the scene and the everyday sound of Harlem is transformed.

BBC Radio 6 Music broadcast: 16th September 2017


Soweto Kinch begins a four-part journey of discovery in Harlem, a few square miles in northern Manhattan which have given the world great musical riches.

He hears from Pulitzer Prize winning novelist David Levering Lewis (author of "When Harlem Was In Vogue") about the origins of the area and visits the site of the "Tree of Hope" where superstitious musicians have touched the bark to help launch their careers.


We hear about the unique Harlem Stride style of piano jazz; visit speakeasies and the site of the famous Lincoln Theatre (which is now an Episcopalian church); and journey to Sugar Hill, the home of the Harlem Renaissance movement which saw intellectuals produce some of the area's richest writing, poetry and painting.

Arto Lindsay - Late Junction Mixtape 1st September 2017

ARTO LINDSAY - LATE JUNCTION MIXTAPE 01.09.17 (320kbs-m4a/70mb/30mins)
BBC Radio 3 broadcast: 1st September 2017


Earlier this year the Brazilian-American musician Arto Lindsay released his first album in 13 years. Now he takes time out to select some of his favourite music from recent years for the latest edition of the Late Junction Mixtape.

Once described by journalist Brian Olewnick as 'sounding like the bastard child of Derek Bailey', Lindsay first emerged from the avant-garde No Wave scene in New York in the 1970s with his band DNA. Since then his music has tripped between abstract noise, electronica and bossa nova and he's become known for his studiedly naive guitar style. Over the years he has worked with many different musicians both as collaborator and producer, among them Caetano Veloso, David Byrne, Laurie Anderson, Tom Waits and Ryuichi Sakamoto.

For his mixtape he's selected songs that he's been listening to obsessively over the last year, the songs that have been wearing the needle out on his record player and draining his laptop battery. Recently he's been interested in the latest developments in hip hop, praising new artists like Young Thug and Future for their innovative pop production. Jostling for space on his mix are harmony singers from Bahia, a moving piece written by Lou Reed after the death of his friend the song writer Doc Pomus, and transgressive performance art from the early 1970s.

Late Junction: Nick Luscombe With Golden Records 29th August 2017

LATE JUNCTION: NICK LUSCOMBE WITH GOLDEN RECORDS 29.08.17 (320kbs-m4a/206mb/1hr30mins)
BBC Radio 3 broadcast: 29th August 2017


Marking the 40th anniversary of the Voyager Golden Record, a sonic gift sent into space by NASA to transmit earthly music, sounds and languages to extraterrestrials. A committee chaired by Carl Sagan selected the contents of this "message in a bottle cast into the cosmic ocean", including bits of Bach, blues music, and Chuck Berry on the gold-plated copper disc.

Tonight the task is Nick Luscombe's. He will be speculating on what futuristic sounds we would send out into the universe were we to do it again now, as well as playing the best bits from the original Golden Record, including traditional music from Benin, Peru, and Australia, mariachi from Lorenzo Barcelata, and Hindustani classical music from Kesarbai Kerkar.

To help discuss and dissect the Golden Record, Nick welcomes Black Quantum Futurism to Late Junction. Made up of experimental musician Moor Mother and author/attorney Rasheedah Phillips, they are an afro-futurist force in music, film, and literature, with a special interest in time capsules and temporality.

Humanity's farthest and longest-lived spacecraft, Voyager 1 and 2 achieve 40 years of exploration this August and September. Though they have left the planets far behind and will not come close to another star for 40,000 years, they continue to communicate with NASA daily.

BBC Radio 6 Music broadcast: 24th September 2017


Somewhere within an area bounded by Zola's residence in exile, Pissarro's paint pots, Marconi's mistakenly Martian message receiver and the site of a Spurgeon sermon, lies a tract of boggy ground of which not even ardent foragers are aware.

It was whilst digging for peat on this land that my spade struck the metal box.

A box buried in the rich dark layer.
A box buried in the moine dubh.

On retrieving and opening what looked like an ammo tin I found it to be full of quarter inch magnetic tape.

Tapes full of invocation, evocation and magick.
Spells etched into magnetic ribbons.

FAC 501: THE TONY WILSON STORY - 2. PART 2 (320kbs-m4a/137mb/60mins)
BBC Radio 6 Music broadcast: 20th August 2017


Paul Morley presents the concluding half of FAC 501: The Tony Wilson Story to mark 10 years since the Mancunian broadcaster and cultural catalyst passed away.

On August 10th 2007, music mogul, impresario, Northern institution and professional motormouth Anthony H. Wilson died of a heart attack aged 57 at Christie's Hospital in Manchester.

Tony Wilson will always be remembered as the founding father of Factory Records, the man behind bands like Joy Division and New Order and creator of one of the world's most famous clubs - The Hacienda - as well as for helping to establish the scene that was Madchester and continuing that task with In The City.

Music journalist Paul Morley traces Wilson's life, from growing up in Salford right through to his last days suffering with cancer, including an exclusive interview with Tony months before he died, plus interviews with friends and family on how one man's passion and self-belief affected the cultural and physical landscape of the city of Manchester.
