Founded by radio host, music producer, label owner and journalist, Colleen “Cosmo” Murphy, Classic Album Sundays allows listeners to fully immerse themselves into an album by exploring its context, the making of and a full replay of the album on vinyl.
To coincide with each live event, Colleen will be presenting each album on Worldwide FM, with just as much attention to detail and respect for the music as the regular sessions in London, New York City, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Tokyo, Oslo, Portugal, Boston, Austin, Portland and Manchester.
Listen back to the WWFM x Classic Album Sunday shows below:
Episode 1 with Stevie Wonder’s Songs in the Key of Life, plus an interview with DJ Spinna in New York.
Episode 2 with Billie Holiday’s Lady In Satin album, which was first released on June of 1958.
Another week, another Worldwide FM outside broadcast! Today we’re at Le Mellotron in Paris, with Gilles and Thris Tian hosting Victor Kiswell, Hugo Mendez, Busy P, Piu Piu and a few other surprises on the way.
Tune in at 10am and 6pm GMT on Sunday 30th October for Colleen Murphy’s second monthly instalment of her Classic Album Sunday show! Episode 2 features Billie Holiday’s Lady In Satin album, which was first released on June of 1958.
The show will be available for on-demand listening after the 6pm broadcast.
At the end of last month, we headed out to California for How We Do LA, a magical evening of live music, held at the beautiful Ace Hotel Theatre, formerly the United Artists Theatre.
Presented by WeTransfer and curated by Gilles Peterson, the evening was composed of a unique lineup of artists collaborating for one night only. With the Miguel Atwood-Ferguson Ensemble providing the backbone to the evening, and performances from Badbadnotgood, Gaslamp Killer, Haitus Kayote’s Nai Palm, Bilal, George Clinton, Kamasi Washington and Sa-Ra Creative Partners, it was pretty unforgettable.
As the event completely sold out, WeTransfer had the audio mastered and uploaded to give all of you who weren’t able to enjoy it first time around the theatre, another chance! You can now listen back in full below.
