Lost Steps back on Resonance 104.4 FM!

FLICK THROUGH THE radio channels on Freeview and what a load of rubbish there is: religious nutters, Heart FM, Chris Moyles. It’s more fun watching the messages scroll down on Rabbit Chat & Date: tell me all about yrself . . . then tell me some more! – sent in by someone with a head like a fifty-bob cabbage.

But there’s not just hope for me, there’s hope for all Londoners now the brilliant Lost Steps programs are back on Resonance 104.4FM, starting this week on Thursday 14 October at 10.30pm.

Lost Steps is produced and presented by Nick Hamilton and Malcolm Hopkins and the first program in the new series interviews Peter Marshall, a photographer who set himself the goal back in the 1970s of photographing every London street. Ambition on that scale is what the London Sound Survey trembles and aspires to, and Peter Marshall has put a lot of his work online here at his My London Diary website, which stretches from 1999 to the present, with links to some older photos too.

You could spend hours exploring Marshall’s work, but don’t miss him on Lost Steps, this Thursday, only on Resonance 104.4FM.
