The latest edition of the Join The Future show on Noods – our first since June – aired last Sunday, 17th October, and is now available to stream via the embedded audio player below. It’s an action-packed affair featuring a blend of talk, new and old music, and features.
The highlight of the show is a recording of the panel discussion from Join The Future’s first Words & Music event at Strange Brew, which took place on Tuesday October 5th. The discussion, which was hosted by our own Matt Anniss, features Bristol City Council’s Night-Time Economy advisor, Carly Heath; Save Bristol Nightlife campaign founder Annie McGann; and promoter, club consultant and Lady of the House co-author Laila McKenzie. For the purposes of the show, the recording has been split into two parts.
The show also features Matt discussing some new and forthcoming music-related books (with accompanying music); a dash of Brit-Funk; news of the return of Ital Rockers at a special Bleep & Bass event in Leeds; a tribute to the late Richard H Kirk and the first new Bleepography entry since the summer of 2020.
