Can & Dec’s Thursday Night Takeaway
Airs fortnightly at 7pm on Thursdays, on CamFM
Hosted by our Director, Fiammetta Fuller Gale, the show airs fortnightly at 7pm on Thursdays, on Cam FM (the radio station run by students and alumni from the University of Cambridge).
In conversation with a student composer guest each episode, Fiammetta presents half an hour of music for choirs and vocal ensembles that you won’t find in the classical canon. From the fabulously niche to the extraordinarily obscure, this show centres the music of composers from under-represented and minority groups, from the twelfth century to the present day.
The show won ‘Best New Show’ at the Cam FM Awards 2020.
In Series One, Fiammetta interviews student composers and their music. Topics covered include diversity in music today, female composers through the ages, and setting texts by female poets.
In Series Two, Fiammetta interviews musicians from Cambridge and further afield.
