‘London Calling’

“London is such a hotbed of emerging talent, you’re just tripping over it in the streets basically.” Martin ‘Youth’ Glover

For this first Live episode of On The Radar, Ifa takes us to Portobello Road to visit the Mau Mau bar on a quest to great music talents and she stops at two legendary record stores: Honest Jon’s Records and Rough Trade West.

She also tells about her chance encounter with two music legends she failed to recognize (oh the shame): Nik Turner from Hawkind and Youth from Killing Joke.
