Profile

Max Reinhardt

Max started his lunchtime show at Soho Radio at the start of this year, emerging from his dozen years as a regular presenter of BBC Radio 3’s night time classic show Late Junction. When he got the call from the adventurous and ambitious station, that is the fabulous Soho Radio, he embraced the opportunity and embarked on what has turned out to be the start of a whole new chapter of his radio adventures: a weekly live Friday lunchtime show from the heart of Soho.

It has a unique and totally addictive feel,  featuring long-form interviews and freeform conversations with an astonishing variety of guests and music for the musically curious. Even Lockdown hasn’t stopped the show in its tracks. With the consummate technical support of Soho Radio, he has been broadcasting live from his home studio in Oxford, with guests coming in courtesy of all kinds of comms networks, often bringing exclusive versions of their music to the show…some from their archives and home studios, others recorded at Soho Radio’s studios.

From the getgo, the Late Lunch Show has welcomed a vibing and varied roster of guests. They come from a criss-cross of areas in the world of the arts and include:

Alex Ho, Errollyn Wallen from the world of contemporary classical music; musical icons like Nitin Sawney and Richard Dawson; exploratory composers and musicians like Jennifer Walshe and Gazelle Twin; award-winning poet,  Roger Robinson; from theatre companies like the Sh!t Theatre duo and Charlotte Mooney from Ockham’s Razor; stars of the incandescent and stellar London Jazz scene like Cassie Kinoshie (Seed Ensemble & Kooroko) and  Sarathy Korwar (totally ubiquitous!!); guests from the Folk  Music of these islands, another music scene having a wondrous revival/reinvention, have included Eliza Carthy, Peggy Seeger and Sam Lee; music journalists like John Doran &  Luke Turner from The Quietus etc.) and Jane Cornwell (Jazzwise, Songlines, London Evening Standard etc); roots music virtuosos have included Mosi Conde, kora playing griot from Guinea, and Syrian kanun virtuoso, Maya Youssef. We also have covered events and festivals like the Arts Foundation Awards for exploratory musicians, won by Klein this year, and the EFG London Jazz Festival.
