Radio was a constant companion for Hamid Zénati while he worked. His niece Wassila Bedjaoui fondly recounted the sounds of Channel 3 Algerian radio broadcasting blues, jazz or social and political news from his studio whilst he worked late into the twilight hours.

The radio in Gallery Four plays a selection of tracks taken from Zénati’s CD compilations.

We've made a playlist on spotify with the tracks available there, or you can find the full track listing below with links to youtube videos.
