Music sounds better with you, feat. BBC 6 Music producer Shola Aleje

This episode's guest is radio and podcast producer Shola Aleje.

Shola works on Lauren Laverne's BBC 6 Music show, as well as producing podcasts for Emma Gannon, Cherry Healey and Bestival.

We recorded in Shola's London living room, which has a gorgeous vintage vibe, a shelving unit filled with vinyl and a large canvas print of Bruce Springsteen from around the turn of the century.

We talk about how radio was a way of connecting across time and space before the internet; being part of the first generation to grow up without, and then with, mobiles and easy access to the internet; and what we can learn from cover versions and samples. Find the covers we talk about here:

We also go down memory lane right back to the 90s and reminisce about the voices we heard on the way to school in the morning, Bam Bam and Streetboy on Kiss 100 Breakfast. Where are they now? 


How has your industry moved from analogue to digital? Each episode, creative guests tell host Suchandrika Chakrabarti how the internet has revolutionised work.
