‘Everything is going to the beat. It’s the beat generation, it’s beat, it’s the beat to keep…’
The Beat Generation is where angel headed hipsters can sip an espresso and rest their weary souls after a Saturday night dancing in some Soho dive bar. It’s a little piece of San Francisco with a dash of New York set to the beating heart of London. An hour long Sunday morning journey On the Road from Blues to Jazz, from Funk to Soul and from Hip Hop to Spoken Word.
