Roots Musings - A tribute to Brussels, Belgium & the Belgians. Remembering Chris van der Stappen - the reason I went to Brussels. Since Paris, 'atrocity' has been hanging over Brussels like the sword of Damocles. Having lived there, for a brief while, I have memories and friends there and, having checked on their wellbeing, I reflected - like so may ‘ex-pats’ who worked in Brussels, I didn’t actually know much about the local culture. This show is, in part, a tribute to the resilience and open hearts of the Belgian people – whom I found to be quite ‘zen’ – but also an overdue exploration of their incredible music scene. “Big in Belgium” used to be a rock ‘n’ roll insult. It’s now a cherished goal!

Roots Musings

Thank you so much for the comment! It was a great pleasure to explore Belgian music and I look forward to listening to your show. I have only been on Mixcloud three weeks, it's wonderful to find other people, in other countries, doing radio the way I like it. Warm thoughts and love to everyone in Belgium.
