Welcome to Richard Povall’s Emporium of Sound

You never know what to expect; you never know what you will find. Explore with me each week as we visit all kinds of places (by no means always, but often by the sea) and meet all kinds of people (well, sometimes). Could be music, could be talk, could be a rich soundscape.  Whatever it is you’ll find it on Soundart Radio 102.5fm  (or here) on Thursday mornings at 10am.
