Community Radio 201

The first episode of No Magic jumps in right where we think we're starting from. Plus some exciting “haven't been on air for a month and also jetlagged” mistakes. I'm joined by alumnus Johan who digs into a whole load of African music that he's been listening to lately, we revisit a few 2018 highlights, and the album of the week is the brilliant “Your Dog” from local singer-songwriter Rose Droll.

You can also follow the show on Spotify to keep up with our playlists.
