The other week, before our gig at the Paradise, 2 players from the OAE: Maggie Faultless and Robin Michael, myself and our regular Night Shift presenter Alistair Appleton all headed up to deepest North London to a well-hidden studio to record an hour-long show for Resonance FM’s ‘Clear-Spot’. We talked about all things Night Shift, chatting about the pub gigs and how they’d been to play at, why we had decided to do them in the first place and also talked about the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and what makes it different. Added to this we looked ahead to our Roundhouse gig (did we mention that it’s THIS FRIDAY?) and heard some interviews with conductors and audience members. Plus Maggie and Robin provided live music, which was quite a treat, and the whole 45 minutes or so was a really lovely, friendly experience. I think we all forgot the microphones were there which was probably a good thing!
The broadcast went out last week but we’ve got it here on our soundcloud page for your listening pleasure.
