Paloma Faith will present a musical tour of the Olympic boroughs: Tower Hamlets, Hackney and Newham on Tuesday 24 July, 10pm, BBC Radio 2.
Travelling through the years and around the Olympic boroughs, Paloma discovers a thriving musical scene stretching from the streets in Bow, home to Dizzee Rascal and to Rough Trade East, Brick Lane's cutting edge indie record label.
Paloma's tour features the pubs and clubs that lie in the shadow of the Olympic stadium.
