True House Stories Episode 054 was broadcast Wednesday August 4th with ‘a truly fabulous female DJ from the UK’. Guess who that guest is?
I am proud and honoured to take the opportunity to update your mix supply with downloadable, stellar guest mix from real house music royalty – Fred Everything (Canada). I drop some new tunes as usual for the second part of the show. You know the coup. Feel free to like, subscribe and leave a welcome back comment. Next month’s guest is DJ Heather so if you want to hear that too ..leave a message.
Welcome to Press Play! – A new concept for Twitch, where DJs share their genre-non conforming knowledge, beats and basslines. It’s a game of 90 minutes that nearly didn’t make it to air thanks to my Anker Hub exploding and my not having a back up (a lesson learned, back up bought and thank you full moon). But after half an hour of nerve wracking, technical jiggery pokery – the lovely (and very patient) Dave Brown Face Timed me – and my WFH set up – right back on air … and for that I owe him a great debt of gratitude. Enjoy.
Next stop on the HEAR HEAR journey around the world for International Women’s month (because a day is nowhere near enough time to show all the women who influence and inspire us some love) is Manchester. In Episode 4 I celebrate the Divine Feminine version 188.8.131.52 with a true Manchester legend, celebrity, singer, Manchester United fan, dog lover and my HEAR HEAR INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S MONTH ICON – ROWETTA (MCR, UK). She’s a Proper Mancunian with a heart of gold and I’m honoured to have gained an audience with this absolute Queen.
Happy New Year and Welcome to the first Accaliberation of 2021. Since National Lockdown has been recommissioned for series 3, this month’s story time focuses on the theme of ’Never Alone’. I call on some soulful sages and wise wordsmiths from Soulclap, The Beatles, James Brown, Fame Gospel Choir, Marco Faraone, Bobbi Humphrey, Patrice Rushen, Brainstorm, Blaze and many more to channel a message of how we can make our way through this lockdown and the pandemic with dignity, a smile and a sweaty body. It’s a soul, funk, disco, house genre-hopper and tells an isolation story like only music and lyrics can.
I invited the powerhouse Heléna Star (Foundation FM) to do a guest mix and an interview to close out 2020’s isolation shows with a flourish.
It doesn’t seem that long ago when my Takeover was blessed with the honour of hosting French house music royalty. Enjoy the show where David Duriez schooled us all. Feel free to leave a comment and plenty of love for my 9th isolation takeover for Reform Radio.

16 October 2020 I had the good fortune to sit at the table with a BBC 1Xtra presenter par excellence. the incredible Jamz Supernova. I sat in on her ‘Distant Dialogues’ special on the British Council’s ‘Selector Radio’ and this is what it sounded like.
Congratulations to my friend Jaguar Bingham on launching her new podcast series ‘Utopia Talks’. So honoured and proud to have sat around the virtual table with her, Lauren Flax and Sophia Kearney (Weird and The Wonderful) to discuss the issue of sexual misconduct and abuse in the music industry.
This Is DJ Mag’s ‘Black Representation in the UK Dance Music Industry’ #paneldiscussion from the BRIGHTON MUSIC CONFERENCE. Set an hour aside for you to view and reflect.

Over three beautiful days in August, the battle cry was ‘don’t let the virus get you down’ as We Out Here Festival and Reform Radio showed everybody how it’s done, provided the online, underground contrast, powerful political platform and the shining stage for talks, djs, artists and screenings for all that’s good from Manchester to London and around the world too.
