Lungs

To honour the anniversary of the oldest working opera house in Europe, Amy's taking a look at those performers with a bit of range and an accompanying lung capacity.

To honour the anniversary of the oldest working opera house in Europe, Amy's taking a look at those performers with a bit of range and an accompanying lung capacity.

There'll also be a Gallic tunage feature, a listener Lazy Sunday and some grooves to make you move.

A broadcaster, performer and writer, Amy has been a regular voice on 6 Music. As well as sitting in for Tom Ravenscroft, Lauren Laverne, Nemone and Steve Lamacq, she has also presented one-off specials. These include the Sunday Service slot last year, where she explored the music that led up to Gay Liberation in the late 1960s, the music that drove the movement forward and the songs that inspired her, as part of 6 Music’s Loud and Proud season.
