In our new podcast Guestlist, Studio Brussel presenter Rik De Bruycker takes a look behind the scenes of AB once a month.
“It took a while, and numerous visits, but then it suddenly dawned on me: this AB programming is not just a random collection of bands and concerts. The things that are happening across the world, that is what you see at work on the legendary Ancienne Belgique stage.
In Guestlist, I will be talking to two important AB artists each month, taking a closer look at the latest music news and inviting both musicians and listeners on a journey into the musical universe of this legendary Brussels venue.
Once a month, we’ll be taking a look - and a listen - at the goings on behind the iconic façade and impressive programming of the Ancienne Belgique. "

In the first episode (in Dutch only), we’ll be discussing the Belgian Jazz Scene with Mattias Decraene and Lefto. Is ‘BBC Sound Of...’ over- or underrated? We find out with Ayco Duyster, Black Mamba, Josefien Wouters & Eppo Janssen. Rik sends Stefanie Mannaerts (Brutus) off to a surprise concert, and the AB’s very own Anysa Grammenoudis shares her current favourite record. The podcast jingle is composed by the promising producer Sara Dziri . Join us!
