Welcome to Connections, the programme that brings music together like a game of dominoes. The simple rule is that each song played on the show has to 'connect' to the next one in some way...The science stops there...

You can listen to the programme LIVE at and on good old fashioned radio on 94.9FM in the Istanbul area at 17:00 Istanbul time every Saturday. (That's 15:00 GMT, 10:00 EST (Where it's a sort of breakfast show) and 03:00 Sunday NZST (Where it's a through night jam) In addition, I'm steadily adding the archived programmes that date back to October 2009, so there's plenty to keep you going...

Connections 100 22/10/2011 (10/22/2011 US)

This was the 'centenary' show, so I decided to reflect 100 years of music writing...These songs were written between 1911-2011. Something a bit different, but the music still had to connect in the usual ramshackle ways!!

You can listen to this show by clicking on this link:-
