Absolute Radio

Later today four newish bands will record sessions in studio three at the Abbey Road Studios for Absolute Radio, which will then air the recordings on its ‘Sunday Night Music Club’ in December. The acts due to play are Born Blonde, Bwani Junction, Iko and Oli Wennink.

Commenting on the new music initiative, and the station’s partnership with Abbey Road, Absolute Radio Creative Director Vince Lynch told CMU: “Absolute Radio is keen to support the music industry and help foster and build artists for the future. This session offers a number of emerging acts the opportunity to play in the world-class Abbey Road Studios, as well as having their session filmed and recorded for national radio”.

Abbey Road’s Jonathan Smith added: “Abbey Road Studios is committed to continuing the incredible rock and pop legacy of our past 80 years. These live acoustic sessions with Absolute Radio do that by bringing new and emerging artists through our studios where so many landmark recordings and performances have taken place”.
