In a sweeping melodic paradigm shift, Denmark Street Radio (DSR) is gearing up to transform your auditory landscape, ushering in an eclectic new era of freeform music. We are thrilled to announce the exciting addition of ‘Turnstyles’ to our daily schedule, an exclusive to UK listeners that we’ve managed to procure from our friends across the pond at Radio Rethink.

Turnstyles, a musical journey like no other, is an unparalleled mix of deeply eclectic sounds that are curated meticulously from Ambient to Zydeco. The masterminds behind this aural treat, the renowned radio veterans Joel Davis, John Schaefer, and our charismatic host Sam Fuqua, sift through the deepest crates to serve a blend of new discoveries and prized lost gems. This remarkably cohesive programme brings together a diverse range of sounds, presenting an auditory experience that will delight and captivate in equal measure.

The programme adheres to a classic vinyl “A Side / B Side” philosophy. The two-hour A-side leans towards the more low-key, whilst the “flip side” delves into a more adventurous soundscape during the late hours.

Turnstyles spins across multiple eras, styles, and artists, providing an expansive auditory feast. For instance, you’ll find yourself immersed in the poignant melodies of Folk artists such as Gillian Welch and Phil Cook, the raw energy of Rock through the likes of On. Wará and Courtney Barnett, and the irresistible rhythm of Reggae from Holly Cook and Lee “Scratch” Perry. From the exotic beats of Latin with Bomba Estereo and Tom Ze, the soothing strains of Jazz by Nina Simone and Jeff Parker, to the pulsating rhythms of Afrobeat with Miriam Makeba and Fela Kuti, Turnstyles has it all.

The electronic soundscapes of Suzanne Ciani and Boards of Canada meet the innovative Modern Composition of Mary Lattimore and Aksak Maboul. And that, listeners, is merely the tip of the iceberg. Guiding you through this panorama of musical discovery, our host Sam Fuqua lends context and insight, making the Turnstyles experience truly immersive.

The auditory odyssey begins airing on DSR every weekday evening from 10pm, and from 8pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

In offering this tremendous thank you to Joel Davis, John Schaefer, and our host Sam Fuqua at Radio Rethink, we at DSR are not merely expressing gratitude for a radio show. We are thanking you for an experience, a voyage, and a musical education that we’re honoured to share with our listeners. Welcome to DSR, Turnstyles. We couldn’t be more excited for the journey that awaits.
