Sweltering in the current heat, I remembered Spike Lee’s ‘Do The Right Thing’ and thought ‘why not share some of my favourite black music from movie soundtracks for my show on Worldwide FM?’. So this is what I’ve done.
For July's second Reform Radio Takeover (yes to those five week months) - my guest mix controls were blessed by Henriquez - one of the residents for the mighty Mancunians - Zutekh. It's a beautifully eclectic mix which is deep, techy and electronic and I am sure you will show him plenty of love with the listens!
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…
Welcome to accaliberation, my monthly celebration of the voice in all its guises and glory.

Music this month comes from the mouths and minds of a genre-hopping roll call which includes Sofia Karlsberg, FKA Twigs, Unkle,…

Here's my Christmas-ish (and birthday-ish) show for Accaliberation. I've popped some random thoughts about 2020 and my hopes for 2021 into a blender to make a fun, super smoothie. Everyone from The Avalanches, Clarence Carter, J Boogie, Donny Hathaway provide a tangential perspective on my isolation Christmas.
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.
Youtube Premiere for new content. Meet Heléna Star - presenter (Foundation FM and DJ). We're accentuating the positive through the lens of the pandemic. So here it is. HEAR HEAR. the lunch break interlude you need now, full of help, blessings, advice, guidance and lots of laughter.
