Wandsworth Radio Noticeboard – 5th-11th March

Wandsworth Radio Noticeboard – 5th-11th March

Hello! I hope you have all had a fantastic week. Whether it has been having a snow day or struggling into work, we hope you have been locked in to all of the fantastic programming you can find on Wandsworth Radio.

Female Friday is on each Friday from 12pm-4pm. From left to right: Nicolette Wilson-Clarke, Ayesha Casely-Hayford, Chloe De Save.

Last week we were especially delighted to launch our FEMALE FRIDAY afternoons, led by the amazing trio of Chloe De Save, Nicolette Wilson-Clarke, and Ayesha Casely-Hayford (left). All of their shows were absolutely fantastic, inspirational, and most of all a pleasure to listen to. If you missed anything, the shows are always posted on Mixcloud, which you can get to here.

To read more about Female Friday, have a read of our recent post.

Without further ado, here’s what we have in store for you this week.

Monday evening sees Lesley Strachan meets Adam Samuel-Bal (below), the cheeky lead actor of TARA ARTS’ new play THE GAME OF LOVE AND CHAI. The play – a modernisation of an 18th-century farce – is given a Bollywood twist by the writer NIGEL PLANER. This sounds amazing funny and important to know – if you have an SW postcode, discounted tickets are available. Running until 24th March, you can hear all about it on Artswatch from 6:30pm.

On Tuesday, Bev Boyd asks Rachel Bagshaw, what is it like to live daily with chronic pain which has no apparent source? How might you even begin to describe it? Bagshaw, whose real-life experience of chronic pain and synaesthesia is explored in this one-woman play performed by actress Hannah McPake at BAC, describes how she directed the show, written by Chris Thorpe. Produced by China Plate, hear all about this from 6:30pm on Artswatch.

Later on Tuesday, in honour of International Women’s Day, The Irish Jam presents a special edition of the show to champion Irish female artists. Melanie Simpson and Claire Solan will be speaking to Hannah Little who is behind the #hometovote campaign regarding Ireland’s upcoming abortion referendum. Pillow Queens will be chatting ahead of their An Oiche Eile gig on March 16th. There’s also a musician and advocate Emma Langford on the show to discuss her work surrounding promoting female artists and her music. On top of this all, they have a jam-packed playlist of music from the best Irish female artists today lined up for your aural pleasure from 10:00pm.

On Wednesday, Paul is joined on the Joyzine Radio Show by musician & comic artist Steven Horry, who will share tracks from his new project with Mark Fernyhough and talk about his new comic Lizard Men. Tune in from 7pm.

Ask yourself: Have you ever wanted to run your own revolution? Bev Boyd speaks to Wandsworth theatre director Joe Ball of Exit Productions as she tries out Exit’s interactive game and theatre experience at the Vault Festival, currently running in the Banksy tunnel under Waterloo station. Hear it all on Artswatch, live from 6:30pm on Thursday.
