Tipping Point

Tipping Point is a radio programme that wanders close to the edge but only falls over occasionally. It plays music that wanders freely, crossing genres, continents and times, although it has a soft spot for modern jazz.

It tries to find links between performers, styles and themes so each programme can take listeners on a kind of journey.
