Fruitsaladradio is a charming DIY radio show passion project from Joe Taylor. A drummer turned host and all-round indie sweetheart, Joe threads together an ever-growing patchwork of stories from people across ages, encouraging tenderness between music and memory. With the premise being a fruit salad of diversity, compilations blended together to form a wholesome mix of goodness, Fruitsaladradio is able to pair (pear) Graham Nash with Israeli Prog rock and it totally makes sense.
If Joe is the cool friend you have that’s always up to date with the latest music Fruitsaladradio is that chat you have with your best mate about growing up. It’s the soundtrack to long drives through Australia and memories of washing up in your parents’ home. For those of us who like a good theme, there’s an episode dedicated to women featuring the likes of Cherry Glazerr, Courtney Barnett and lipstick puns; proving there’s more to radio than the ‘Hottest Record in the World’ (although if Joe had a breakfast show we should all set our alarms).
Fruitsaladradio is exclusively for everybody. A little South-East London gem with a bright future. Shout out to Joe’s mum and her beats.
