Listen to all of the Music Nation programmes
Music Nation is over but the reverberations will be echoing around British music-making for a long time. Thousands of musicians - amateur and professional - got together in hundreds of venues, from pubs to shopping centres to concert halls to celebrate music in the widest possible sense. It was, without risk of hyperbole, awe-inspiring. Radio 3's commitment to the festival extended to over 24 hours of output, much of it live (the station's largest-ever outside broadcast commitment). Music - and the voices of those making it and enjoying it - was heard on-air from over fifty separate locations, from the North of Shetland to the West of Cornwall. Here, using a new service called Pinterest, is a page showing all of Radio 3's Music Nation programmes in one place. They will, of course, all be available for the next seven days.
