Syndicated Experimental radio Show

The Parish News is a weekly experimental radio show & podcast that is aired internationally. Hosted by Andy Backhouse, the show plays avant-garde and unusual music, field recordings and noise.

We trawl the underbelly of the art world to bring you sounds you have not heard before. Working closely with the bigger names in Art PR, we select the music that is the most fitting with current global trends and artistic direction. While the presenting style is Guerrilla and ambivalently irrelevant, the music is always spot on.

If you dig the show and want to say ‘thanks’ to Andy – you can buy him a coffee HERE.

Thanks for listening! x
