Byrd Out – CHELTENHAM
Thursday – 18:00-19:00 (GMT) – Every 4 weeks
A monthly one hour slot with Byrd Out label head, Stephen Vitkovitch, usually joined by a guest mix from someone with a connection to the label. Byrd Out ploughs an eclectic furrow – “genre defying”, to quote The Wire – with output ranging from cinematic dub, to free jazz, to acid. The label is equally sprawling in its geographic coverage, from KMRU in Kenya, to Sarmacja in Poland, to the late, great Andrew Weatherall here in London. Expect pretty wide variation across the show and from one show to the other. Grounded in jazz and dubby sounds.
