Poet, writer, performer and broadcaster Anna Chen discusses the counter-culture with guests Charles Shaar Murray and Phoenix Rainbow. The show starts with a report on this week’s strike in London’s Chinatown.
Guests are legendary award-winning author and journalist Charles Shaar Murray, who brought the counterculture into the mainstream when he got his foot in the door at the New Musical Express in the early 1970s.
And Phoenix Rainbow, who was one of the Occupy crew who took on the developers intent on destroying the Friern Barnet Library — the only public space in the area — and has won it a valuable respite for a couple of years as a venue for cultural learning and expression for the community.
