tQ Ed John Doran plays an hour's worth of exclusives on the Freak Zone

The first day back in the office at tQHQ is often a frantic time of panic and anxiety as every single year the staff reassemble with the bleak notion that music has "gone rubbish" during their two week break.

However, no such fear this year as 2018 is already shaping up to be a vintage year for sonic emissions from the weird and wonderful. tQ Ed John Doran was a guest on the Freak Zone late on Saturday night and chose an entire show of exclusive (and amazing) new music to play to the listeners of BBC 6Music - and you can listen to the show in full here.
