We explore the music of the notorious Christiane F. with Robbie Fields, and journalist Laura Aha on the unsung artists shaping Berlin today.

Christiane F. is best known for her contribution to the book and movie “Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo”, documenting her teenage drug use, we talk to Robbie Fields of trailblazing Cali label Posh Boy Records about her musical talent and her influential Gesundheit EP he released in the early 1980s. Robbie has great stories to share about meeting with and working with Christiane F. and how they came to craft this underground one-hit wonder. We’ll then be joined by Berlin-based journalist Laura Aha, to discuss lesser-celebrated music, artists and scenes shaping the city today.
