The Overflow Show

Glyn Phillips’s monthly Overflow Show brings you the latest releases and previews forthcoming albums and EP’s from around the globe, covering soul, jazz, funk, fusion, electronica, experimental, future beats, house, latin, roots, reggae, world and more in two hours of non-stop music – perfect whether you’re chilling, working or getting ready to go out!
The Overflow Show airs on Brum Radio approximately the third Monday of the month between 8-10pm.
On this edition of The Overflow Show, Glyn showcases new releases from the likes of Canada’s Maya Rae, America’s Orkesta Mendoza, Jamaica’s Max Romeo, Nigeria and South Africa’s Tony Allen & Hugh Masekela (posthumous album), Ghana’s Santrofi and Uruguay’s Martín Buscaglia. There’s also music from Noukilla (Mauritius), Beto Jamaica and Ghetto Kumbé (Colombia), The Silvery Boys (Brazil), En Karma (Canada) and some Ghanaian Fra Fra funeral music! The US is coming in strong with Carvin Winans/George Koller, Lightning Orchestra, the Rev Shawn Amos & the Brotherhood.

Last but by no means least, representing the UK we’ve got the James Taylor Quartet, Joe Armon-Jones (ft Fatima & Oscar Jerome), Chip Wickham, Toni Sansara, Black Roots and Maisha (ft Gary Bartz).

Check out too Glyn’s flagship world music show, WorldBeatUK, which goes more in-depth into the music and the backgrounds of artists and genres!  WorldBeatUK airs on the first Monday of the month and is repeated thereafter on Mondays at 8pm (unless The Overflow Show is on that week).
