Late Junction presented by Stewart Lee (320kbps .mp3)
Journeys in music, ancient to future. The home for adventurous listeners
01. With Richard Dawson For Christmas week, Late Junction is guest edited and presented by comedian and music fanatic Stewart Lee.
Lee has a long-standing fascination with improvised music, choosing guitarist Derek Bailey as incidental music for his shows, and exploring the parallels with comedy through collaborations with the likes of Steve Beresford and Tania Chen. From his time spent in record shops as a teenager, to more recent work moonlighting as a music critic, Lee has built up a deep collection, with post-punk and folk traditions also well represented.
And folk is where his first guest choice of the week comes in: musician Richard Dawson is one of the leading lights of the British scene, through work under his own name and in collaboration with Rhodri Davies as Hen Ogledd. Though rooted in the music of his native north-east, Dawson’s influences include psychedelia, art-rock and the Sufi tradition. He brings in some tracks from his own extensive music library to share with Stewart.

02. With Tim Key
Stewart Lee’s Christmas stint as guest editor continues as he’s joined by fellow comedian and left-field music fan Tim Key.
As a Russian graduate, Key often features unusual Soviet-era music in his live shows, from Vyacheslav Mescherin’s Ensemble of Electronic Musical Instruments, to composer Mikael Tariverdiev, a recent discovery that can be heard in his latest show ‘Megadate’.
Key brings in some of his most treasured tracks; Lee introduces him to some of his own collection too.
