Joe Cushley hosts “Balling the Jack” on Resonance FM Radio, United Kingdom, featuring music that “concentrates on blues, roots and world music, with an emphasis on how these forms have morphed in response to art-rock, punk, indie, jazz, electronica etc.” (Joe Cushley)

It’s an insightful show, with music you probably wouldn’t regularly hear on mainstream radio, which makes for a very interesting listening experience.

The show includes tracks plus live interviews and performances.

Listen live on Fridays at 9pm (UK time) on Resonance FM:
