A panel discussion, curated by two different radio shows to raise money for Resonance 104.4 FM, London's only, and the world's first arts radio station that has been broadcasting since 2002.


Is Music Journalism in a Critical Condition?

The UK music scene once supported four weekly music papers, which wielded the power to form the musical agenda in a way that's unimaginable today. Of these, only the NME staggers on in managed decline, along with an ever dwindling number of monthly magazines.

The changing ways we consume music and the rise of the internet have radically changed the musical landscape, and perhaps this is a good thing. Those weeklies were notoriously bad at covering certain genres, and the internet has enabled a much wider range of writers to share the music they love. On the other hand it has yet to find a reliable way to pay them to do so. Are the days of making a living from music journalism over?

Joining Neil Denny of the Little Atoms Radio Show to explore this question, and to share tales of private jets and rainy nights at the Northampton Roadmender, are the journalists Andrew Mueller, Charles Shaar Murray, Jude Rogers and David Stubbs.

Doors at 7.45pm, starting 8:00pm. There is no need to bring a physical ticket - we'll have names on a list. There will be a bar! This event is being promoted jointly with Soho Skeptics.
