The Moonlandingz, Chris Packham, Laura Cannell, Jonny Trunk, The Queer Bible and many more of our favourite people are on air with us all day today for another QUIETUS DAY OF RADIO. Our second 12-hour marathon of live radio, 10am-10pm will be produced in collaboration with the good people of Lush and broadcast from their sweetly fragranced studios in Soho.

Tune in NOW via We're also broadcasting live throughout the day via our Facebook, here

All the shows will be available on catch-up via Mixcloud.

The first Quietus Day Of Radio back in September featured Nadine Shah, Fat White Family, Steve Davis, The Last Skeptik and Foreign Beggars. It was exhausting and brilliant. Check the Day Of Radio website next week for more details of next week’s schedule, but here’s a few tasters of the feast:

Your old muckers & Quietus founders John and Luke with their customary 60 minutes of the best new music and passable chat in The Quietus Hour. Jonny Trunk is digging in his Santa's sack for a selection of curious Christmas music from the outer reaches. Adrian and Dean of The Moonlandingz are down from Sheffield for an hour of Practical Electronics in Unpopular Music. Laura Cannell will join beloved naturalist Chris Packham and Mark Constantine of Lush for a programme about bird song.

Ace new website The Queer Bible will be hosting a show devoted to LGBTQI heroes, and John Robb welcomes a bunch of practitioners of the extreme musical arts for a chat about veganism. Director Jeanie Finlay is packing some of the unloved treasures she’s found in car boot sales that have gone on to inspire her films. Nadine Shah (#5 in our Albums Of The Year chart) will be bringing the party and guests with 'Nadine Shah's House Party' and we’ve also got Matt & Mira for a tour through the Lush Record Emporium and a wander through the Lush Library. Also from Lush, Matthew Shaw will present a Gorilla Hour featuring contributions from craftivists and guests including Penny Rimbaud of Crass. Liverpool’s Grrrl Power collective will be dedicating their hour to women musicians, chartering their successes across pop, punk and R&B, Quietus pop columnist Anna Cafolla will be going B2B with our R&B and hip hop correspondent Tara Joshi for all your Friday evening smooth jam/chart belter needs.
