Description

Kevin Headley : 'Only One Brick in a Bridge We Have To Build' by Hackney Wick Community Radio

We interviewed Kevin Headley, a couple of days before he passed away. Kevin campaigned on behalf of those excluded from society by homelessness and the housing crisis in our city; in his festivals, events and magazines; and often, literally, on the streets. He was also a huge part of the Hackney Wick artistic community, and as you can hear in this show, he believed in it passionately.

He will be sorely missed, as a friend, and as a campaigner. As words and phrases- community, sustainability, legacy, affordable housing -are thrown around by politicians and developers, to mask their real designs on our cities, our welfare system, we need his hard won wisdom, more than ever.

Here he is, at his; cutting, benevolent, funny, generous, entertaining, always unflinching; best.

Listen up London. Rest in Peace, Kevin.

#5 EDWIN - Writing on Walls
This HWCR show is an interview with artist EDWIN; we grabbed a couple of beers in The LAB and chatted about art, British brick, writing on walls, who owns them walls, and more...'I feel like I've talked myself out of the territory. Fresh voices, like yours, are required.' Iain SinclairHWCR shows focus on the area, its people, and the history and changes in the east end; often referring to the area's position at the sharp end of citywide gentrification. Featuring in depth and Vox Pop interviews, musical selections, soundscapes, contemporary and historical narratives they are streamed through www.wickradio.org The series of broadcasts will also form an archive of an interesting, mostly accidental, experiment in multi-culture and community living, that has arisen in a former industrial estate in the east end of London, and serve as a reference point for future communities on how to protect themselves from appropriation of their ideas by developers, big finance and property investors. Shows are recorded and broadcast in The LAB Hackney Wick, a temporary take over, by artists and musicians Pete Bennett and Joel Smith, of the Studio Bark/GROW Eco Pod situated outside GROW in Main Yard E9 - a flat pack construction of easily assembled, sustainable materials, that demonstrates modular accommodation and creative studio space can be offered for a fraction of the build cost of current 'affordable' options offered by developers.#hackney #hackneywick #graffiti #graffwriters #streetart #edwin #socialcleansing #affordablehousing #thelabhackneywick #eastlondon #community #communityradio #alternativeculture #dj #selector #playlist #wickradio #hackneywickcommunityradio

'The Floating Church' is an interview with trainee Vicar Dave Pilkington, who, based from a wide beam boat moored on the canal at Hackney Wick, describes his plans to set up a neutral and welcoming space for community, debate and reflection; his ideas about the nature of faith and its place in inner city communities... plus his kick ass playlist!HWCR shows focus on the area, its people, and the history and changes in the east end; often referring to the area's position at the sharp end of citywide gentrification.
