This Is Not A Disco

#supportingnewmusic

Karl Phillips

This weekly show serves as a bedfellow to Random Jukebox, also produced and presented by Karl Phillips, and again features two hours of brand new releases, and reissues, albeit with a strong leaning towards the quieter, and sometimes unashamedly stranger, end of the audio spectrum (think ambient, dub, experimental, jazz, neo-classical, post-rock, soundtrack etc.)   Karl is also keen to establish relationships with performers locally and globally. In the spirit of widening access the show also produces a monthly long-form edition creating a broadcast space for longer pieces of work (10 minutes plus) that are not always heard on UK radio. Playlists are updated weekly and can be found here.

Listeners say

I don't know how I found you, but I'm so happy I did. I listen to 96.1 online constantly. Love the variety of music and all the presenters. I'm in Eureka California and have been able to visit Cornwall once. I left my heart there and want desparately to return. Until then, at least I can listen in. Cheers!

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.
