Live session: Dishy Tangent
Interview and live session with the East London based, genre defying Dishy Tangent.
Tom chats to Rich Rags from the band Role Models about the charity single he wrote with his five year old son, Zoli, who has autism. His son loves the London Underground and came up with the singles first line. The track is being released to raise money for Haringey Autism, a charity that staffs an adventure playground for young people with autism that Zoli and his family enjoy.
Where the money will go –
“Every summer on Saturday mornings large numbers of autistic children look forward to playing, climbing and bouncing in the bold imaginative adventure playground at Somerford Grove, Tottenham. They come with their families and siblings for somewhere to play without stress, without judgement and without criticism from others. For eight years, Haringey Autism – a local parent-volunteer run branch of the National Autistic Society (www.autism.org.uk) – has provided this vital service for around 80 families. Every year we are told what a lifesaver the playground has been for families, but from 2013 we have no certain further funding.”
