Euro Curio Brexit Edition

Following Brexit, I thought it was a good time to re-broadcast excerpts from a two-part 2015 mix of ‘Euro Curios, obscure European music from the late 1970s and early 1980s’.
In this re-edit of Transmissions 44 and 46, we take a trip through the synth-pop, cold wave, electro, experimental, euro-disco, new wave and minimal sounds of Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium and France.
The original mixes can be sound here:
