Then it’s over to Downtown LA for some sunshine in our new home base that we launched in December, before heading to Seoul with Thris Tian for a live broadcast from the legendary club Cakeshop. We stop off in Istanbul to check out Turkish community radio culture with Deborah Ipekel, before rounding off our excursion with Gilles Peterson and friends for a massive Worldwide family bash at Nuits Fauves in the heart of bohemian East Paris.
