the svelte selection – Malawi, Lake of Stars and the joy of new adventures
I’m so sorry it’s been so long since an update! What have I been doing with my life? I’VE BEEN TO AFRICA AND STUFF. So there.

About the svelte one
Faced with the prospect of a monthly radio show, the svelte one was torn between the twin beasts of a huge and unruly music collection and a need for structure and limits.
Her solution? Focus her monthly show on What’s Going On In Her Life Right Now.
Expect reviews of gigs and festivals, tunes from new albums and recently re-discovered gems from the past. Everything from glitch to guitars with the occasional bit of ’serious’ music. Just for summut different, innit.
the svelte one is on Thursdays monthly, 20:00-22:00.
