Today's show: Looking back at "Sweetback"

On Friday afternoons on Resonance FM at 5pm, there's a new slot for repeats of I'm ready for my close-up. Rather than just repeat the show from the night before, we thought it might be nice to take the opportunity to broadcast some of the episodes that were podcast while Resonance was off-schedule during the summer for the benefit of luddites who don't go in for all this podcasting nonsense.

Today, we're airing a podcast from 3 weeks ago - Joel Karamath talking about the career of Melvin van Peebles and his seminal film Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song. This was recorded at the first Resonance FM / Electric Sheep film club at The Roxy bar and screen, so this seems a good time to air the repeat as the next film club is on Tuesday from 7.30pm where Alex Fitch will be talking to former Disney animator Vincent Woodcock about character design in animation alongside a screening of Sylvain Chomet's Belleville Rendezvous and his rarely seen short film The Old lady and the pigeons.

If you just can't wait 'til 5 o'clock, you can find the podcast here.
