Wandsworth Radio Noticeboard – 26th March-1st April

Wandsworth Radio Noticeboard – 26th March-1st April

Welcome back to the Wandsworth Radio Noticeboard! As we end the month of March, let’s have a look at what is coming up on the station this week…

On Monday eveningIan Barclay (left) finds out about the critically-acclaimed play ‘Br’er Cotton’ at Theatre 503 from Missouri playwright Terreance Arvelle Chisholm. This award-winning play has toured all over the US but how did it come to be in Battersea? Tune in and find out from 6:30pm on Artswatch.

On Tuesday morning, join Andy Holton from 10am on Wandsworth Workday. Robert J Sherman – the son of Robert Sherman (who, with his brother Richard, wrote all the songs of our childhood) – meets Andy in the studio. Songs from the films Mary Poppins, Chitty Chittty Bang Bang, The Jungle Book, The Slipper and the Rose, Winnie the Pooh and many many more are expected; Sherman joins Andy from 12pm but the show is live from 10am-1pm.

Later on Tuesday, Bev Boyd meets Or Benezra Segal (artistic director at Landor Space), Esther Fernandez (producer), and actor Sam Jones to hear about Crazy Gary’s Mobile Disco. Welsh writer Gary Owen’s first play explores the lives of three men who can’t stay and can’t leave the small town they call home. The air’s blue, the neon’s pink and Tom Jones might not be far away. Running at the Landor Pub from March 27th-31st, hear all about it from 6:30pm on Artswatch.

On Wednesday evening, it’s not all jam and Jerusalem but is it Battenberg and Battersea? Pamela and Mike chat to the newly formed Battersea Women’s Institute on People and Places from 6:30pm.

Straight afterwards, Paul is joined on the Joyzine Radio Show from 7pm by London alt-electro four-piece Big & The Fat ahead of the release of the release of their debut single ‘Fruit’/’Crack Crack’ on We Can Do It Records.

Frankenstein is currently on at the Battersea Arts Centre.

Thursday evening sees Tom King head to the Battersea Arts Centre to see Beatbox Academy’s thrilling interpretation of Frankenstein (right) running until April 7th. He catches up with co-director Conrad Murray and performer Germane Marvel and finds out how they’ve used beatboxing to turn Mary Shelley’s classic work into an exhilarating story about the perils of social media, smartphones and the ‘making of a monster’. Hear more on Artswatch from 6:30pm.

On Good Friday, you can hear all about wigs! Afro Archives host Ayesha Casely-Hayford will be discussing homemade wigs with actor, director & film maker Cat Kiiza from 3pm.


Enjoy the week ahead!
