It's time for something a bit different to the usual electronic beats (although electronic beats of course won't be entirely absent...) - the day after this Sunday's show will mark the two year anniversary of Gil Scott-Heron's passing. A musician much-admired here at Beat Beneath HQ, it seems appropriate to celebrate the date with a show dedicated to the man's music. Active from the end of the 1960s right until his death and encompassing everything from his trademark minimally-accompanied spoken word pieces, to emotive soul and jazz songs, and to his recent forays into electronic music with top collaborators, the man's left a huge legacy of great music.
I'm bringing in Stevie Beats, a man much more qualified than myself to pick out his favourite GSH selections. This show will not be televised, but it will certainly be broadcast 8pm-10pm Sunday 25th May.20:10 - 22:00
