pop // diy // worldbeat // exotic // outsider

This programme was born out of the desire to share the best of the most amazing downloads siphoned from deep within the bloated bowels of the globetrotting music blogosphere. A lost world of undiscovered artefacts and simply outrageous sounds await your careful attention with an oddball selection wandering through past and present independent music, worldbeat gems, exotic oddities, bizarre disco, creepy soundtracks, fuzzy library, deviant crossovers, primitive electronics, amateur incidents, nowadays outsiders...and forgotten fourth world composers. From the sublime to the ridiculous but all fit to be branded "chOOn"!

Fifty Shades of chOOn!!
02/12/2016 // Fifty Shades of chOOn!!

It’s a bullseye! A totally self-sufficient independent anti-label radio show showcasing lost pop, foreign funk and fourth-world bliss without subtitles on barely digital formats hits the 50 episode mark.

How did mr. chOOn!! manage it??

This is a tale of alien forums, faulty google translators, defunct external hard drives, port forwarding Nanna’s wireless, butchered studios, 24-hour bakeries and of course… MOTHERTRUCKING chOOns!!

To explain the full story with accompanying chOOnage would take more than one late night sesh at your local pisshoose of choice... so why not delve back into the archive and plot a scenic route - 100 hours of cross-continental crusades through Iran, Pakistan, Japan, Australia, India, Germany, Spain, France, Brazil, Ethiopia and everywhere in between.

There are no passports required – no border checks, barriers and definitely no trucking WALLS (not even partial fencing).

chOOn in!! Bliss OUT!!
