In the spirit of 'BBC Introducing', Max Reinhardt plays tracks by artists from before they were famous.
In the spirit of BBC Introducing Max shines a light on artists who are unsigned, undiscovered and under-the-radar.
Max plays artists who have since made it big, going back to their early works when they were shaky and unsure. Including Curtis Mayfield's first ever lead vocal, one of John Cage's earliest song commissions and a demo of Syd Barrett found in Pink Floyd bandmate David Gilmour's personal collection.
Incorporating the spirit of Late Junction, Max also visits artists who will probably never see that level of fame or commercial success that are still doing important work that deserves more recognition. Like the inmates at Parchman Farm, Mississippi singing in the late 60s about a death in the community and the Yiddish songs written during World War II.
Tune in tomorrow night when the show is full to the brim with live music and festival fun from the BBC Introducing stage at this years Latitude Festival.
Produced by Rebecca Gaskell for Reduced Listening.
