I did not really know Francis Dosoo when I saw them in Paris earlier this year ; we briefly met each other in Scotland in 2017, where I played at a Rhythm Machine – a party Francis and Andy Danet used to throw in Glasgow and Edinburg. In Paris, where Francis recently moved, we talked about British Arcadia, a topic that took me back to my teenage years when, sitting in the back of my father’s car, stuck in traffic jam somewhere on the M25 on a hot summer’s day, I would fantasize about sun-drenched green hills, welcoming pubs, and tiny villages by a quiet river. The first hour of the radio show reflects on these fantasies.

Francis described their part as « a reflection on memories of moments not yet lived« . I would add that it is one of the most personal and beautiful way of contributing to the radio show I’ve heard so far, going far beyond the selection of songs, even beyond the whole « telling a story » thing . And by saying that, I’m not even doing justice to the beauty of this mix… I listened many times to this wonderful hour of music, you might like to do the same.
