It’s New Year’s Day and Jennifer Lucy Allan is here to exorcise the demons from 2020 with music for a more hopeful future, from Alice Coltrane’s swirling mantras to a dreamy sound collage by artist and sailor Rip Hayman.

There’ll be selections from a new box set of previously unreleased music by the guitarist and ‘Zen Buddhist cowboy’ Robbie Basho, and the kaleidoscopic echoes of composer Pauline Anna Strom from her first album in thirty years. Plus, for anyone who still needs reassuring, we feature a cassette that simply repeats the word ‘OK’ until it loses all meaning and becomes something else entirely. Produced by Katie Callin. A Reduced Listening production for BBC Radio 3.
