Time & Nostalgia

Towards The Point? Is a new monthly arts & culture review programme for 93.7 Express FM, written & presented by James Sandy and Simon Mobbs.The show aims to dig out weird and wonderful cultural offerings from in and around Portsmouth. It sets out to provide listeners with a flickering compass for the stormy tides of "the arts". We take in a range of topics from art, film, literature, music, TV & radio and also give you a round-up of local events and activities.

In the April (2012) show:
Music: Spiritualized showcase new material at The Wedgewood Rooms
Poetry: Julian Stannard Reading & Q&A session at The Tongues & Grooves Southsea Poetry Night
Literature: A Visit From The Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan

Spiritualized showcase new material at The Wedgewood Rooms

A unique sound - difficult to pigeonhole? Overview of performance - Still got it? On Form? The setlist - a satisfying mix of old as well as new material? New work from old bands- does everyone always expect the hits?

Julian Stannard is the author of three volumes of poetry. His work was represented in the Faber introductory anthology First Pressings and the Oxford Poets/Carcanet Anthology (2004) and he reviews for the Guardian and the PN Review. He was awarded the Troubadour Poetry prize in 2010. 

Tongues&Grooves is a monthly club that is now a nationally recognised venue for the performance of poetry and music. T&G regularly feature award winning poets alongside those beginning to establish a reputation.

A Visit From The Goon Squad
by Jennifer Egan

A selection of short stories or a multi genre novel? The main characters and their involvement with the US music industry. Proust and The Sporanos - an unlikely set of influences? The much discussed Powerpoint chapter - a gimmick or a worthwhile experiment? A highbrow book with crossover appeal?
