Engaging, empowering, energising culture in Exeter

Listen again: Culture & Review on Phonic FM

In November, Phonic FM’s Culture & Review programme began a series of in-depth interviews with Exeter’s key cultural producers: the people making the strategic, programming and spending decisions in our city. This series will continue through 2017. If you missed them, you can catch the first two interviews with Martin Thomas and Val Wilson by following the links below.

Josie Sutcliffe is your host.


Josie interviews Martin Thomas, Culture Director at Exeter Cultural Partnership (starts at 46:50). Also in this programme:

  • Reviews of Dead Sheep (a play by Jonathan Maitland, staged at Exeter Northcott Theatre) and the key exhibitions in this year’s Unveil’d festival

  • A preview of On Tenterhooks, the main event in 2016’s Unexpected Festival

  • A discussion recorded at the Creative Collaborations: Contemporary Artists & Cultural Heritage conference, held at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum

  • Music from Ruby May Spencer, Muncie Girls, American Enthusiasm, and Tobias ben Jacob & Lukas Drinkwater



Josie Interviews Val Wilson, Arts & Events Manager at Exeter City Council (starts at 27:40). Also in the programme:

  • An interview with artist Ben Tupper and musician Chris Sergeant, whose collaboration A Mythology in Self Defence is 2016’s Exeter Phoenix Artists Moving Image commission

  • A live experimental audio composition by Chris Sergeant, as both an accompaniment and counterpoint to the Artists Moving Image Commission

  • A review of Fifty-three Stations of the Tōkaidō Road, prints by Utagawa Hiroshige at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum

  • A report from Art SOUP – the crowdfunding event for Art Week Exeter projects

  • Music from Sound of the Sirens; Sadie Horler; King of Cats; Poledo and Holiday Ghosts


Phonic FM is Exeter’s community radio station. A volunteer-led organisation, it aims to support arts and culture (in the widest possible sense), and has been broadcasting to the city on 106.8FM and online at phonic.fm since 2008.

Culture & Review on Phonic FM is a monthly round-up of cultural activity in and around Exeter: it's a mix of reviews, interviews, features and music, expertly presented by Josie Sutcliffe. It's live at 6pm on the first Thursday of the month and available to stream online shortly after.
