Adventures In Sound And Music: Wire 400 specials start today

The first in our nine part series of 400th issue radio shows will feature Tony Herrington and Chris Bohn talking to Ilia Rogatchevski about their combined 45 years on The Wire staff

For the next 2 months The Wire will be hosting a series of special radio shows marking the publication's 400th issue. Aired on London's arts radio station Resonance FM, they'll happen during the weekly Adventures In Sound And Music slot, and feature ten staffers covering a period of nine weeks.

The first show will take place this evening, with Publisher Tony Herrington and Editor-in-Chief Chris Bohn talking to Ilia Rogatchevski about their combined 45 years on The Wire staff. Other shows include Gustave Evrard playing some of his favourite Wire-featured artists from the year he was born (1986), Joseph Stannard will be looking back to issue #127 (September 1994) and the first issue he ever purchased, and Derek Walmsley will welcome to the studio trailblazing musicians and thinkers David Toop and Kirk Degiorgio to discuss black music and its overlooked and underappreciated innovators. For news of further Wire 400 specials watch this space.

Adventures In Sound And Music takes place every Thursday 9–10:30pm (GMT), 104.4FM for Londoners, or stream elsewhere.
