The Non-Resident Alien Show
Hosted by Benjy Barnett.

A weekly injection of tracks from all over the world. Whether it’s a dusty and rare back-of-the-shelf-in-a-record-shop-in-Dakar LP or a recent release from Melbourne’s bustling jazz scene, the Non-Resident Alien Show will bring you music you may not have heard, but certainly won’t forget. With no genre out of bounds, each show promises a different selection of styles and sounds: from traditional folk music to global dance music, you can find it here.
