A conversation with the man who has guided Wijs - through the last 2 years, with reference to the goings -on of the Windrush Scandal, The Sewell Report, BLM, and his own personal anguish and journey with identity. With song selections and a reading to the man who has carried Wijs- through the last 10 years of life - James Baldwin. This piece will have a particular focus on what those men and songs meant for Wijs- during lockdown. He will explore the playlist (curated by Ike Onyewuyenyi) of some of the sounds that filled James Baldwin’s house in St Paul de Vence as well as records on the shelves of his father’s home.

An offshoot of Montez Press, Montez Press Radio was founded in 2018 with the goal of fostering greater experimentation and conversation between artists, writers, and thinkers through the medium of radio. This platform is an experiment in broadcasting and community building which allows different corners of the art world to interact with each other in person and on air—a place where media finally meets flesh.
