The Listening List – Epiphany Audio

As the Xmas comedown settles down (or starts for others), here’s a speedy
look back at some of the best radio offerings from the Xmas period that’s worth
a listen if not done so already.

Starting off with two prestigious songwriters.

‘Don’t Know Much’ The Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil Story
BBC Radio 2

From the Animals to “An American Tail” a comprehensive insight
into two special songwriters, from their home in Los Angeles.

A Carpenters Christmas with Petula Clark BBC Radio 2

The audio equivalent of a very warm loving hug.

Radio Moments Remembers Serenade Radio

David Lloyd presents an affectionate look back at the broadcasters
who said goodbye in the last 12 months.

Coldcut’s New Year’s Eve BBC Radio 6 Music

An eclectic array of melodic movement ushering in 2017.

Revisionist History –  Blame Game Panoply Media

Not all podcasts are an easy listen. But even when taking on a
harrowing subject, this offering from Malcolm Gladwell certainly isn’t boring.

Johnnie Walker Meets Peter Kay BBC Radio 2

A much anticipated interview, pretty much in the same format as
“Car Share” only with a more informed fellow passenger alongside
the bard of Bolton.

Worth listening to the bit at 12:50 alone.

No, no, it’s actually worth playing to anyone with the belief that radio is
on the verge of dying, or maybe has forgotten why the medium itself stands out,
and can continue to stand out, within a whitewash of digital media.

Which if radio will embrace effectively, there’s definitely a fair chance
of it lasting in 2017 at least.

Here’s to more of the exciting, unseen good stuff.

About Robin Blamires

I live in Canterbury and really enjoy radio and audio producing. I currently present a show at community station CSR FM called "Blam Jam" where I play a wide selection of soul, jazz and electronica music, and elsewhere in the station I help out with producing the station sound, creating on-air idents and sweepers. I would love to bring my skills into professional radio and continue to learn more.
