Gilles Peterson – Brownswood Basement w/ Colleen

Updated: Mar 4, 2023

Worldwidefm broadcast Gilles Peterson's four-hour Brownswood Basement show on November 17th 2022 with Colleen "Cosmo" Murphy, Ana Ruiz, Naima Karlsson and Nabil Ayers.

On September 12th 2022, Gilles Peterson announced he had to pause Worldwide FM's activity at the end of October, after six years of broadcasting, the radio station entering "a period of transition" (read more about this here). The radio's activity was not entirely put on hold though as archived material was still available to listen and Gilles was to continue hosting shows on a regular basis. So, within this limited activity, on November 17th 2022, Gilles hosted a special Brownbasement show with special guests: Colleen Murphy Nabil Ayers Ana Ruiz & Naima Karlsson.

It is one thing to discover Colleen's life story while reading interviews and another one to listen to her speaking about her past experiences in radio/djing. In this Brownswood Basement episode, we get an excellent recall of Colleen's main life events and we also get to hear her so communicative laugh, which is priceless. An absolutely nice and Balearic listen indeed!
