On Friday 6 January from 22:15 to 23:30 BBC Radio 3’s show Mixing It features alternative music in Los Angeles. The presenters Mark Russell and Robert Sandall meet film composer Jon Brion, hip hop producer Madlib, guitarist Nels Cline, sound artist Akira Rabelais, and drummer John French.
You can listen to the programme at the Mixing It homepage for one week after the broadcast.
Radio 3 have kindly put together a transcript of the interview for those who, like me, failed to pick up the program within the required one week.
The transcript is available by e-mailing
