William Onyeabor on BBC Radio!

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014


It is with great excitement that we can announce that William Onyeabor has agreed to his first ever interview on radio!

The interview will be conducted by the lovely Lauren Laverne of BBC Radio 6 Music and air on Monday, December 8. It will then be broadcast in segments throughout the whole week (her show is at 10am-1pm GMT every day) and available for a whole month on their nice website (listeners outside the UK can tune in live via this link too!). Hallelujah!!

If you are familiar with William Onyeabor you will know what a big deal this is as he never does interviews. If you don’t live in the United Kingdom and are not familiar with who Lauren is, we can assure you that she is a very warm and wonderful person. Most importantly, there is no one we feel more comfortable about speaking with Mr. Onyeabor.

We are very excited about this and and hope you will enjoy it too!
