Pauline Black is an author, actress, and lead singer of 2 Tone Ska revival band The Selecter from Coventry, England. The racially diverse band led by a female singer originally formed in 1979 and have been creating conscious music ever since. Pauline talks about the business of running a band, gender and race politics, and the music of the spheres. We talk about 2Tone culture, racial unity, how people can come together through music. We also talk about their new album Daylight.  The name refers to the sun rising and chasing away the dark, it also refers to the fact that sun will always rise. Even if we blow ourselves up in a nuclear apocalypse. The sun will rise.
