Up and away playlist from Dilip Harris
Renowned music producer with an awe inspiring record collection creates a custom playlist to help us elevate from the lockdown drag.
OUTSIDE INSIDE, WOMBLING FREE
"Ever since my Gran took me to see the Wombles live on stage at the Shepherd’s Bush empire in 1976 I have been liberated by musics ability to emote the abstract. The absurd TV soap opera of tiny fluffy beings who lived on Wimbledon common, collecting the detritus of the park while no one noticed, seemed like a magical realm of freedom and escape and it’s music transported me to that place.
My tastes have subsequently veered towards an other; the possibility of difference and a world beyond my own experience. In this time of imposed restriction, contraction and consolidation that our collective responsibility requires, music's transcendent possibilities provide us with a journey beyond our own four walls."

therapy of the senses worthy of the Wombles ethos of “underground, overground wombling free”
