About the programme

Val Baker cooks up Musical Recipes with a pinch of Country, Americana, Roots, Bluegrass, Folk and just about anything she feels like in her own inimitable style. Yee hah!

There’ll be all the old Country legends like Jim Reeves, Johnny Cash and Dolly Parton. But also expect the unexpected as Val brings you up to date with all the latest modern music with artists such as Alison Krauss and Union Station and the Dixie Chicks – one of the largest selling genres of music in the world.

One thing’s certain – it’ll never be boring with Val in charge

It has introduced me to lots of new people, that I may not have otherwise met. I've learned new skills and improved my confidence by creating a radio show and presenting on stage. And felt well supported through everything I've done with Source

I've produced some content for it (Source) during the lockdown, and I train students to make radio and help them get involved in Source FM, one of my PhD researchers uses it for his work too. It's a really important resource that brings people together and helps us get more people able to make audio.
