This week, the United Kingdom continues to bide its time on whether to remain part of Europe. On this and the old show, we've spent some time expressing a lot of anger over this. But tonight — the last live show before Ben goes travelling for a few weeks — we take a different tack: No Magic celebrates music born of the collision between Britain and its European neighbours. Music that's very existence is a testament to the freedom of movement, and embrace of shared culture and participation.

Rocìo Rødtjer joins us, maximising our European nationalities in a single guest.
