808s & Hot Takes

808s & Hot Takes

Wednesday at 13:00GMT

General music/talk show, mostly hip-hop with a few other genres thrown in now and then (mainly indie, electronic, pop). Hopefully will have a guest on most weeks to do a music quiz and an album review. Usually episodes have some sort of (often flimsy) overarching theme or connection.

Episode 4: Recapitulation

In this episode, we examine some artists who took long breaks between releases and some who have given us their final albums. We are joined by Finn Marsden of Under the Radar with Finn Marsden and we review Fiona Apple's 'Fetch the Bolt Cutters'.

Episode 3: Genesis

Today we take a look back at music that inspired previous generations and get nostalgic listening to some noughties classics. Our quiz guest this week is Tally Costello and we review A Tribe Called Quest's 1991 album 'The Low End Theory'.

Episode 2: World

In Episode 2 of Season 3, we explore music from across the world, not just the USA and UK, as this show so often does. Former Co-host Owen Fuller joins me for the music quiz and we review Tame Impala's The Slow Rush.

Episode 1: New Beginnings

The first episode of season 3! This first episode is all about new beginnings and hence, themed around debut albums. Featuring a quiz with special guest Finn Marsden (Under the Radar with Finn Marsden) and a review of Run the Jewels' debut album.
