An Afternoon with: Mary Anne Hobbs

70 min

Boiler Room's Editor Gabriel Szatan had the rare opportunity to sit down with the veteran broadcaster for an extensive conversation, looking back over a full life in music.

They touched on a lot: John Peel worship and smashed Bowie LPs in hometown days; key dubstep flashpoints (including Loefah painting taxis); breaking new ground for neo-classical at this year's BBC Proms; embracing the darkness with Sunn O))) and The Haxan CloakKendrick Lamar's vital role in politics; plus scoping the future of grime, jazz and beyond.

What binds it all together for Mary Anne Hobbs, then? Staying loyal to the soil – & if that doesn't make sense right away, revel in her storytelling here and it just might.
