The Wilton Way Jubilee Street Party: 1952-2012
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. Highlights include Anna Greenwood’s love letter to the 1990s, ‘Bumbags, Boybands and Britpop’, alt.cabaret troupe Fitzrovia Radio Hour’s 1940s radio plays, Prince Nelly’s Retro Chart Rundown for the 1980s, Charity Shoppe’s ‘Fuck the Jubilee’ special, in which presenter Ian McQuaid takes you through the anarchy and punk of 1970s Britain, and Roxanne Roll’s exploration of 1900s to 1920s music hall, where she receives a request from beyond the grave.
You can listen to the full series of podcasts at www.londonfieldsradio.co.uk/shows/jubilee-2012 from Tuesday May 29, 10am. For more information on the party and the radio shows, it’s after the jump.
