Due to ill-health, I have spent precisely zero time putting the show together so far this week.
However, with necessity being the mother of invention and all that, I have decided that round about about now would be a good time for a round-up of the shows so far.
So this Sunday sees a 'Journeys Sampler' of tunes that I loved from the past 18 shows so far, and some that didn't quite make it to air the first time around.
Expect everything from Funk to Reggae to House to the Blues, and a bit of everything else so far covered.
Expect Femi Kuti remixed by Kerry Chandler, King Tubby, Rotary Connection, Asha Bhosle, Herb Alpert, Simple Minds, Howlin' Wolf and many more.
The Weird But Wonderful choices are an attempt to redress the vote from way back in the 5th show; where I pitted a couple of my least favourite Roy Ayers tracks against each other. This week it's two cracking Roy Ayers written and produced RAMP songs which feature:
1. RAMP - Daylight
Written with long-time Ayers associates Edwin Birdsong and William Allen, this was sampled for A Tribe Called Quest's 'Bonita Applebum'.
2. RAMP - Everybody Loves The Sunshine
Now a Roy Ayers classic, this was recorded by him just a few month's before being laid-down by RAMP - with Ayers at the controls. Also sampled for a hip-hop tune, this tme by PM Dawn for 'So On & So On'.
To decide which one plays the show out, get in touch during the live broadcast: [email protected] or text 'subcity' then your message to 07766 40 41 42.
