Been listening to a lot of BBC 6 Music at weekends. Gilles Petersen really is a very skilful curator of sound. A mentally refreshing moment to oneself.

Coordinating timezones with this lot to kick off a special programme to start the New Year. Live in Singapore, London and New York chatting to @BBCMarikoOi @BBCSimonJack and @BizFleury 👋🏻
