As a special The Rider has hooked up with the Liverpool International Music Festival for the next month to talk about that festival, Liverpool’s music scene and the international scene as it stands.

This week it is Neil Atkinson, John Gibbons and Stephanie Heneghan looking ahead to this year’s event and looking back at years past. There is also a clip from TAW’s special interview about the importance of the arts with Jennifer Johnston.

The Rider on the radio. No swearing but more great songs than you can shake a stick at.
