Almost June already! Events and Radio UP!!D8s galore

One day I will keep this website completely up to date - every week it is noted in my listings as the go to place for full details! If you are looking here after hearing about the site from my show The Outerglobe - welcome!!

The Outerglobe goes out on Thursdays at 6.30pm UK time and is repeated on Tuesdays at 6am on and 104.4FM / DAB London. It is archived in with selected items in 

The most recent show featured my interview with the brilliant Congolese visual artist Eddy Kamuanga Ilunga currently exhibiting at October Gallery Old Gloucester Street, London, with 'Fragile Responsibility' . The exhibition is finely political - an homage to the souls of enslaved people and an indictment of 17th & 18th century traders and contemporary politicians alike through the central motif of the Toby Jug and porcelain and Eddy's classic circuit board marked exquisitely rendered figures.

I promised the playlist - so please go to the tab titled Radio - The Outerglobe, productions
