How lovely is it to have Radio DIVA back, eh folks?
First off, apologies that Rachel and Rosie's interview with Cameron Esposito didn't happen last Tuesday — ah, those pesky technical difficulties!
Fear not though, roving reporter Rachel Shelley and host Rosie Wilby's interview with the stand-up comic will instead air this week.
Esposito is currently in London as part of her run at Soho Theatre, London, with new show, Person Of Consequence, and we were super chuffed to be squeezed into her busy schedule.
(Check out deputy editor Roxy Bourdillon's interview with Cameron on, "queerness, comedy, and how she’s changing the world, one lesbian joke at a time" in the September issue available here)
As well as Stateside comedy royalty, there'll also be live performance from self-taught singer-songwriter and YouTube superstar, Hannah Trigwell.
Having had over 100 million views on her YouTube channel, numerous top ten international singles, including two number one singles in Laos and Vietnam and more than 600,000 total followers online, Leeds-bred Trigwell’s journey is one that many try, but few succeed at.
...and Hannah's not the only northern lovely on air this week, as our northern reporter Roisin Murray, interviews Spraggars (aka Lucy Spraggan) after her 10th performance at Manchester Pride's The Big Weekend. Pride royalty, eh?
On top of all of that lovely stuff, post-punk four piece Glossii (read more about them here) will be live in the studio for chats with Heather and Rosie, plus lesbro Jonathan Phang will be back with the LGBTQ+ news.
Make sure you tune in this Tuesday!
