13:00 Calling All Pensioners
Magazine programme with Tim Hamilton, addressing issues which affect pensioners across London. This week: a repeat from January 2014, DAGE’s Barbaras Raymond and Banks and Cathy react to the findings from the Saga survey which states that out of 12,000 older people aged over 50, 1 in 5 are planning to cut back on other spending so that they can heat their homes. We ask what should the government do now to prevent the continuing excess in winter deaths that come about when older people turn down or even turn off their heating during the coldest part of the year? They also react to Labour’s leader, Ed Miliband’s election promise that if voted in, in 2015, he would freeze energy price rises for 20 months. DAGE’s Harry Haward reacts to the scaremongering by our MPs that pensioners, among other low income groups, will have to choose between heating and eating, and this is followed by a timely reminder from Harry of what we offer at DAGE, such as news that Charis Grants can help clear your energy debt. Produced by Deptford Action Group for the Elderly. [Repeated Sunday 2pm.]

04:00 Radiophrenia Redux (repeat)
[Repeated from Sunday 6.30pm.] Works commissioned by and broadcast at Radiophrenia, the arts radio station broadcasting from Glasgow's Centre for Contemporary Arts in August/September 2016. This week’s featured works are: ‘Arena On Energy On Tape’ by Stuart Gurden, part of a continuing exploration of a ‘distended’ abstraction rooted in everyday activities, it is a drifting, layered composition woven from field recordings, appropriated and altered sounds, discrete performance, and time stolen back from work. Referencing a found motivational tape, and the BBC2 arts strand and it’s Eno title music, the piece is a soup of binaural immediacy, approximate noise, elusive periodicy, and mangled guitar and natural forces, all filtered through saturated tape loops, and a cannibalised Leslie cabinet; ‘The Garden’, an absurdist radiophonic work by Katapulto with narration by Bruce McClure. The vocal delivery refers to popular styles: the new age yoga teacher, the TV nature programme presenter, the narrator of fantastical children stories. The sound sets the tone for the voice, works as an emotional support for the voice but also as a dense and multilayered set, an autonomous character in its own right. Radiophrenia was supported by Creative Scotland.
