The Glass Age

A monthly music show where Dan Whitehouse and his musical guests discuss the emotional impact of music, our listening habits and how our human experience and ways of connecting have changed through the ‘glass’ of virtual meetings and communication.

The way we communicate has changed under lockdown, but our feelings remain authentic and strong.

Expect what on the surface appears to be a random bag of records recommended by friends – an eclectic mix of soul, folk, electro, rock and indie records that share the unifying feature of true expression.

This month’s guest is the singer songwriter, pianist, drummer and choir leader Ed Blunt who shares his own experience of living through this age of glass, from gaining a new songwriting mentor in Chris Difford of Squeeze, to his online dating experiences. 

“People say kids have a short attention span but that’s not right. Kids can get lost in things so easily – if you teach in the right way their attention span can go on and on and on.”
