Refugee Radio

I've just finished listening to a fantastic programme on Radio Reverb, Brighton and Hove's community radio station: Refugee Radio.

"It's a bit like Desert Island Discs, except instead of some boring celebrity talking about the records they'd take to a desert island, I will be interviewing different refugees from the local community and finding out what music they brought with them to our desert island of Brighton," says Steve Silverwood, the former refugee advice worker who hosts the show .

Today's show featured Haval, a young Kurdish refugee from Syria and some excellent Kurdish music. It provides a very personal picture of one man's story, and you can listen to it here.
