The Bonus Hour was a live radio show recorded at Gasworks, London and broadcast on Resonance FM, Sunday 13 May 2018.

 

It was roughly about what kinds of labour we value enough to reward significantly and the other kinds we under acknowledge.

 

We talked about what a bonus is, why we don't get one and who does actually get one. We rustled some £ notes and coins and made other non-monetary based sounds.

We played some tracks and shared some facts...and offered metaphorical bonuses to some people we think deserve them. We also be asked our lovely listeners to phone in and welcomed some very, very special guests...
