Things to do: October 2 to 8

People, places and things on our hot list this week.

Website of the week:
We're certainly not the first to realise that radio stations are more like advertising platforms than sources of good tunes. Our music prayers were answered when we discovered Radio Paradise (RP), an online platform made for all kinds of music lovers. The 10-year-old website was founded in San Francisco by Bill and Rebecca Goldsmith and plays ad-free music all day long. Visit and give it a go, and if you enjoy it as much as we do you could support the great music cause by donating through their website. RP is also available as an iPhone app.
