Hello and welcome to episode 176 of the ACPG podcast.

This episode is the last interview of the series. But don’t worry we will be back for a new series and our much loved outro episode.

In this episode Ben is zooming with J Willgoose, Esq of the fantastic Public Service Broadcasting.

The talk about PSB’s new live album, approaching playing live, writing new albums, and more.

A celebration of the power of radio written in recognition of the centenary of the BBC, This New Noise saw the band joining forces with the 88 piece BBC Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Jules Buckley. A standout performance from 2022’s BBC Proms, it received 5*s in The Telegraph who called it “a resonant, timely and ultimately touching show”. Founder member J. Willgoose, Esq. remixed the concert from scratch, bringing out even more depth and texture from a multi-layered performance and showing it in a new light.

This New Noise is the second time Public Service Broadcasting have been commissioned for the BBC Proms. In 2019 the band performed an orchestral arrangement of their 2015 studio album The Race for Space with The Multi-Story Orchestra to mark the 50th anniversary of the first manned mission to the Moon.

Thank you to J Willgoose, Esq, Jodie, and Elliott for their support with this episode.
