The Wilton Way Café Jubilee Special: 1990s

The Wilton Way Café and London Fields Radio present a special series of podcasts from 1902 to 2012 to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee ahead of their free street party on Sunday June 3.

Presenters on Hackney’s micro radio station count down the eras, from the 1900s to 2000s, commemorating the best (and worst) of the decade with music, commentary and LFR’s distinct DIY flavour.

In this episode, Miss Anna Greenwood takes on the 1990s with a ‘Bumbags, Boybands and Britpop’ special, a musical journey back to the reign of same-sex pop bands, Cool Britannia and number ones that sat at the top of the charts for months. Like Manhattan is Woody Allen’s love letter to New York, this is Anna’s to the 90s.

Land of Kings: Anna Greenwood’s Dinner Disco

In May 2012, London Fields Radio returned to multi-arts, multi-venue festival Land of Kings in Dalston to host an evening of pop-up radio with guests and hosts from across the festival line-up. We took over the Print House Gallery until midnight with a special selection of shows.

In this, the second podcast of the day, Guilty Pleasures’ disco doyenne Anna Greenwood returns with an episode of her new London Fields Radio show Dinner Disco, featuring culinary guest Clare Roberson of Green Onions and Shacklewell Nights. They take you through foodie chat and more, while Anna soundtracks it all and artist Cleo Roberts swings by for a chat.

Anna Greenwood is a dj and performer and resident at Guilty Pleasures in Camden. She likes food and pop records. Preferably at the same time.

Dinner Disco, Vol. 1

Dinner disco brings you a recipe from a local food business in Hackney, be it a restaurant, café or deli and Anna soundtracks the cook-a-long. Or in this case, records that she feels fit the recipe.

First recipe comes courtesy of the Spurstowe Arms on Greenwood Road via their pop up restaurant and is a Pig’s Head and Pistachio Terrine. There are sadly, no medieval songs within the show. It is instead an hour of top disco / electro / pop that would get any kitchen in a good mood. Or sty for that matter.

Anna Greenwood is a dj / performer and is the Guilty Pleasures resident at KOKO and nationwide.


Pig’s Head and Pistachio Terrine (serves 12)


1 split pig’s head
2 large peeled white onions
3 carrots peeled
1 whole celery washed
4 bay leaves
100g thyme
250g shelled pistachio nuts
Salt and pepper to taste

To serve

English mustard
Crusty bread

Place pig’s head in container and run under cold water for 20 minutes, roughly chop onion, carrots, garlic and celery and put in large pan add bay leaves, thyme and pig’s head; cover with water bring to boil and simmer for six hours topping up water as needed.
When the meat is very soft and falling away from the bone remove all ingredients from liquid and disregard liquid. Allow to cool for about 1 hour.
When cool enough to handle pig all the meaty parts of head including eyes, cheeks, tongue and brain then throw away the skull and remaining vegetables and skin.
Shred the remaining meat add your shelled pistachio nuts and salt and pepper to taste (add a little more that you think as it will be absorbed over time).
Place mix in cling film lined terrine mould and set in fridge for four hours.
To serve cut 2 cm thick slices of terrine serve with toasted crusty bread, cornichons and English mustard.
