Oxford College Castaway is a reworking of Radio 4's Desert Island Discs, where undergraduate or graduate students are interviewed about their lives, experiences, and journeys to Oxford. The presenter, St John's DPhil student Alice Watson, then plays the castaway's eight chosen pieces of music.
In Episode 14, DPhil Music student Graihagh Cordwell talks to Alice on Oxide Radio, the student radio station. The episode
features a wide-ranging discussion about Graihagh's thesis on refugees and
music in the Zaatari camp in Jordan, studying and performing music in
Manchester, life growing up on the Isle of Man, and working backstage at the
theatre. And also life in Oxford and Graihagh's favourite things
about St John's!
