"TONIGHT!!! Monday 5th September, I will re-launch Xfm’s classic evening show Music: Response. The agenda: to bring the freshest multi-genre experience and the world’s most forward thinking artists to Xfm every Monday to Thursday from 8-11pm.
This is such an exciting new challenge for me, an unprecedented opportunity to paint much broader brush strokes, build on a lifetime's hunger for new music, and bring more of the artists I’m so passionate about to a primetime radio platform.
Jimi Goodwin from Doves will be my special guest on the very first show Monday 5th September 2011. Jono McCleery will deliver the first live Session Of The Week.
My primetime Saturday show will continue to break the finest young underground electronic artists 7-10pm.
This week my guests mixes come from Martyn and DjRUM both exclusively previewing brand new music.
Much love and maximum respect to Andy Ashton, Mike Walsh and all the Xfm massive."
Let’s push things forward...
So this is awesome news, only a few months after starting her show back up on XFM the response has warranted an extension to 5 days a week. If you haven't checked the show before i highly recommend tuning in and also visiting her mixcloud page for previous guest mixes.
