Radio 4 and the artist

I discovered while googling the names of members of the Royal Watercolour Society that at least two of them (Annie Williams and Alison Musker) were featured in "Radio and the Artist" a Radio 4 website about how artists work with the radio on.

Apparently the Bankside Gallery had an exhibition called "The Artist and Radio 4" in 2005. The BBC website lets you listen to Norman Ackroyd, Raymond Briggs, Kaffe Fassett, Zandra Rhodes and others explaining what radio means to them.

I used to be a big Radio 4 listener but now have a variety of background noises that I like when I'm working - including complete silence

Do you work to music, the radio or muse in peace?
