Kaleidoscope Arts Magazine

Kaleidoscope is an Arts Magazine program designed to bring the music, drama and literature  in the Adelaide community, and wider afield, to 5mbs listeners.  It is presented by Emily Sutherland.

From the enthusiasm of Kathryn McGown, publicist and event manager,  the erudition of Susannah Fullarton, who knows all things Jane Austen, to Yuka Echugi and Kemp English, exciting New Zealand musicians, it’s all sizzle and go in Kaleidoscope this week.
