"'A Mix Tape for Gus' feels as if it ought to be the beginning of a short series. Radio 4 should commission it before all our C-90s are thrown away." David Hepworth, The Guardian
In this programme I explore how music can hold memories and act as a messenger between times and people. My brother Gus had eclectic and exciting musical taste, he made mix-tapes for me and we shared many, many musical experiences. This legacy has influenced and inspired me, as well as his other friends and family and it continues to do so.

A twist on modern folk, with a nod to Tom Waits in the woozy orchestral corner and Aphex Twin on the side of messy electronica, 'Lost and Found' is the new album from singer songwriter Emily Levy with songs about life, changing times and how the world around you can be altered in an instant when you lose someone you love.
Featuring a stellar line up: Matthew Bourne (piano), Sam Hobbs (drums), Mark Creswell (guitar), Rich Arthurs (guitar), Jon Burr (harmonica), Richard Ormrod (wind) & Gary Stewart (vocals).
