we learned this week with great sadness of the passing of ian rawes, sonic enthusiast and single-handed creator/curator/producer of the london sound survey; a charismatic fantastic speaker, generous soul, and good friend of the program. he will be greatly, greatly missed, and we dedicate this program to his life, his work and his memory. our thoughts go out to those closer to him than we were.

if you are not familiar with the london sound survey, we definitely recommend you explore it, but only if you’ve got the time, because once you start digging in here you probably won’t come out for hours – it is fascinating, entertaining, moving, and beautiful:

and if you’d like to read more about ian and his work, tony herrington has written a wonderful piece about him in the wire:

or you can read the great interview paul skinner of the london metropolitan archive did with him in 2019 (also linked to in tony’s essay):

we can’t say enough about ian and the sounds he captured for us all, so we won’t say anything else; we’ll let his sounds do the talking. we’ve constructed this show largely from the 2 LPs released as the london sound survey, 2013’s these are the good times and 2019’s thames. 2 other recent releases that have been waiting for airplay seemed to fit well in the mix, simon whetham‘s closed system and gabie strong‘s wilding sun, so we included them, along with another london recording, an intro made at a brexit rally (pro- or con-? we don’t know) in parliament square in 2019 by keith de mendonca.
