Experimental music and art pieces containing phone calls. Verity Sharp hangs on the telephone with Captain Beefheart and Captain Maurice Seddon.

Telephone calls and remote communications are all the rage in these strange days of social isolation. Therefore, tonight’s programme makes a virtue of this communication limitation by indulging in the best experimental tracks, live recordings, and art pieces that feature phone calls.

Join Verity Sharp as she imagines hanging out on the telephone with Laurie Anderson, John Baldessari, Captain Beefheart, Captain Maurice Seddon and many more.

Produced by Jack Howson.
A Reduced Listening production for BBC Radio 3.
