BBC Radiophonic Workshop

The BBC Radiophonic Workshop return to their spiritual home of Maida Vale to play a live session.

BBC Radiophonic Workshop return to their spiritual home Maida Vale for their set tonight. How excited do you think Marc is over this live session from these true legends?

The BBC Radiophonic Workshop, set up in 1958, it as originally created as a sound effects unit for BBC Radio and TV programs. Pioneering new forms of drama during the late 1950s and early 60s demanded innovative and original use of music and sound which they'll be bringing to our show tonight - Yes.

If you needed a bit more of a tease - yip they'll be doing a re working of the Dr Who theme.
