Hosted by Domenic DeCicco, acclaimed musician and producer who has recently joined the Frome clan after years of living in London, the show will feature a diverse collection of musical sounds, ranging from world to roots, acoustic and folk, to some cool laid back ambient and chilled grooves with even a bit of jazz mixed in. Add a splash of conversation and the occasional live session, making for a relaxing way to ease into the night.
When Leslie Glenn Damhus’ painting Madonna and Chimp was shown during the Open Art Exhibition in Spring 2010, it prompted a flurry of letters in the local papers regarding the appropriation of Christian imagery. In January this year, Black Swan Arts hosted a debate around this issue. The speakers were: Salil Tripathi, writer and policy director at the Institute for Human Rights and Business, whose most recently book is about censorship and artist Rob Irving who is undertaking doctoral research into performative action in the shaping of sacred settings.

On the 12th February, FromeFM’s Dave Watkins (pictured here with his wife Jenny) will be leaving behind his usual role as presenter of the local sports round-up show ‘Sport Pie’ and recording a special interview with Helen Sprawson-White, the Frome Mayor.
It will be a 60 minute programme, featuring all sorts of questions about her role as the Mayor and all kinds of other stuff as well. Nothing too serious or political! Helen will also be playing us some of her favourite songs.
Dave is keen for anyone in Frome to send in their questions for Helen to the FromeFM studio.
All questions can be emailed to FromeFM: firstname.lastname@example.org by Feb 11th.
The programme will be available for listen again within a couple of days of recording by visiting http://www.fromefm.co.uk/ Programmes > New stuff.
