Every Friday, Daniel White takes over the airwaves at the online radio station Incapable Staircase for an hour (and a half this week) of some of the best songs used in films, along with "occasionally interesting bits of information." Catch up with yesterday's show...

ABOUT iNCAPABLE STAiRCASE
iNCAPABLE STAiRCASE is an internet-based community station that is passionate about real radio; unrehearsed and raw, but it is precisely this that makes it so easy to listen to. The station has been running for just over a year and was set up by Bella and James at the start of the first Covid lockdown last year.
As news of the restrictions became public Bella and James decided to create an online radio station that would allow people to share their music, their opinions and their creativity in a space free from censorship and interference. In five minutes they had a name, randomly created by a word generator, and a logo. The heart of the station is you, it's me and its attraction is growing. With over 60 DJ's broadcasting each week, live from their own homes, and with plans for festivals and much more, now would be a great time to tune in. 2021 will prove that iNCAPABLE STAiRCASE is, in fact, very capable of stepping up and taking on the radio big names.
