“Sound Artist Frenchbloke curates 24 hours of previously unheard music donated exclusively for this project by innovative artists, musicians, and producers from all over the world. The transmission is of specially composed work, forgotten recordings and alternate versions of existing work, none of which have been heard in public before. The sound works aired on the broadcast will be deleted afterwards and may never be heard again.
Listen in your car or on a portable radio while you hike in the hills, or sit back and relax and hear it transmitted to The Dark Star Lounge deep in the Forest…”

Six), Gazelle Twin, Pye Corner Audio, Windham Festival Chamber Orchestra, Richard Moult, Frances Castle, Moon Wiring Club, The Psychogeographical Commission, Scarfolk Council and me old mate Gareth Davies, although he won’t tell me what name his track is under.
