360 Degree Show

Sundays, 12.00-1.00pm | With Tim Short

The perfect excuse to explore the full circle of music the world has to offer.

“It’s not world music anymore…” says Tim “…or even folk. What we have is a world of music and I love exploring it. There’s Columbian music coming out of London and Mexican sounds from Italy there is limitless potential for music and it does not recognise boundaries.”

Unrestricted by a brief, genre or style the 360 Degree show has a deep love of music from the African and South American continent. Rhythm and melody are prime and high-class musicianship a passion. Tim is constantly sourcing the latest releases worldwide and exploring the archives and back catalogues of labels and the web.
