Get In The Van
Having listened to last week's show I have decided that from now on I won't be announcing details for specific events on the show- it leads to complicated lists that I'll probably misread as well as taking up valuable time that I could be using to play more records, and it's boring chat frankly. From tonight onwards I will list upcoming performances by artists that have featured on GITV in an announcement I will post online at the same time as submitting my playlist.
Tonight's Get In The Van will feature music that straddles genres and decades, from Roots Manuva to Ronnie Spector. I'm ridiculously excited!
Tonight I drove the van as if I had stolen it and managed (just about) to cram eighteen tracks into the hour. GITV 2 featured a breakneck (though rather inexpertly beatmatched, shame on me) Marcel Dettman mix as well as superb songs by Daedelus, Dan le Sac and Dananananackroyd, as well as (keeping with the alliteration for now) contributions from Roots Manuva and Ronnie Spector, as well as a beautiful tearjerker from Spiritualized.
I promised I'd write an events diary for music featured on tonight's show, so here goes...
