They may come from different ends of the radio dial but, for one night only, BBC Radio 6 Music's Steve Lamacq and Radio 3's Tom Service combined their passions for music to produce the first ever collaboration between these two diverse and distinctive radio stations. As well as featuring double Mercury Prize-nominated Laura Marling, 6 Music's own Cerys Matthews and original punk rock purveyors The Stranglers, the line-up includes the London Sinfonietta, playing works by Varese, Berio, John Adams and Anna Meredith.
First broadcast in August 2013.
