The Arts Desk Radio Show Returns

Blend of wildly internationalist music and musings from Culshaw and Muggs is back

Aziza Brahim

And so after a long hiatus, The Arts Desk Radio Show is back on a new platform, the fabulous MEATTransMISSION radio station out of Hoxton, and a new regular monthly slot, but the same blend of wildly internationalist music and musings from Peter Culshaw and Joe Muggs.

For the debut of the new format, they cover Scottish salsa, Pakistani Beatles, Parisian Arabic acid house, Detroit electro-soul, German ambient blues, Anglo-Indian party jazz, Brazilian trap beats, Kathy Burke and a whole lot more. This show is downloadable as a single two-hour special, then from the next month onwards we'll be giving you one-hour podcasts every fortnight.
