Touch Radio Added To British Library Archive

The British Library has added Touch Radio to the ranks of its named collections. Touch Radio will now be included in the British Library’s Archival Sound Recordings website, stored alongside the UK’s national collection of over 150 million individual radio recordings that stretch back to 1924.

Touch Radio has broadcast one programme per month since January 2005, with programmes that run from anything between a few minutes to over an hour, by artists including Phil Niblock, Chris Watson, Philip Jeck and more. Listen to the the Touch Radio archive here.
