Show Notes

Graham and Charles discuss the financial viability of artists who rely on streaming, reflecting on the news that Nadine Shah, one of the UK's most celebrated indie artists has had to move back in with her parents. Charles wonders whether the arts can learn anything from the recent Euro 2020 final and reminds Graham it is not too late to see Sir Alan Ayckbourn's eighty fifth play in Scarborough and Graham wonders whether British fiction has any truly celebrated experimentalists. Charles looks at the fate of artists who rely on support from local councils in order to exhibit their work as York welcomes Pop Up Piccadilly.
