I spoke to Emma Finamore about some of my early pirate radio experiences for this FACT magazine article:
Women pioneers of pirate radio
A nice trip down memory lane, and reminder of my accomplishments/ how far we’ve all come. Big love to original Flex, Pressure, Rinse and other pirate crews for giving me space to contribute to the progression of underground music culture.
Ahead of their HUGE multi-boat Odyssey down London’s River Thames, I spoke to Red Bull Music Academy about underground/ pirate radio. Listen to the whole documentary here:

For anyone that missed it, I guested on Kate Hutchinson’s Worldwide FM show Thursday 8th March, as part of the station’s all-women line-up of programmes for International Women’s Day 2018.
It was fun, and great to meet DJs Elayne and Camilla – who I’d either grown up hearing/seeing in media, or reading about their involvement in LWR, Dread Broadcasting Corporation etc. Definitely could’ve done with being a 2-hour show, at least!

If you’re in the UK, turn on BBC4 this Friday, 29th September at 9pm for a documentary that looks at how a generation of pirate radio broadcasters changed the face of UK music. It’s hosted by the man Rodney P and should be a good watch!
