The very first Quiet Revolution playlist Tuesday 13 February 2007

I’ve been digging into my archive and found this which was the playlist for the very first Quiet Revolution show. Steve Earle “The Revolution Starts Now” (from “The Revolution Starts Now”, 2004, Artemis Records) Segue Peter Bruntnell “Here Come The Swells” (from “Ends of The Earth”, Loose, 2003) Gillian Welch “Time (The Revelator)” (from “Time […]

Ain’t it funny how time slips away: 14 years of the Quiet Revolution

Loudon Wainwright III wrote a wonderful song called Unhappy Anniversary which appeared on his rather under-rated More Love Songs album (was it really from 1986?) Well 10 February marked 14 years of HFM Radio being on air and therefore the Quiet Revolution has amazingly been running for the same amount of time. In case you […]

A Quiet Revolution special edition available now

I’ve enjoyed artists and composers whose music might be described as new classical or classically influenced for some time. I’ve occasionally included tracks on the show. However, I wanted to put together a one-off programme where I just play tracks from artists such as Max Richter, Olafur Arnalds, Dustin O’Halloran, Richard J.Birkin et al. Hope […]

Update on live shows

I’d been hopeful that the Quiet Revolution would be able to return to it’s regular fortnightly live broadcasting from 8 December. However, following the announcement of the new lockdown tiers, HFM Radio is extending it’s temporary reduction in programming with each day’s live show’s ending at 9pm. This will of course be reviewed at a […]

Temporary pause on live editions of the Quiet Revolution through November due to lockdown measures

Unfortunately as a response to lockdown HFM Radio has made temporary changes to its schedules resulting in a reduction in live programming. This means all specialist music shows with a 9pm start time won’t be on air until December. Hopefully (fingers crossed) my next live show will be on 8 December. I plan to record […]
