I posted about this guy before/after Christmas, but I’m posting again because his Radio 2 show needs a mention. I do try to listen/listen again when I remember – its on Wedsnedays at 10pm on Radio 2 for just an hour – but its an hour of quality radio (highlight of my Radio week). Just a whole mix of Soul and R&B old and new buts its all good vibes.

To listen again or to find out more information about Trevor Nelson’s Radio show.

Jay Sean Documentary

Sunday, February 21st, 2010

Someone who I have followed and rated since day one when he first dropped Dance With You. I’m not really feeling his new direction after signing for Cash Money much prefer his Independent stuff from his first two albums. But you have to hand it to him the first U.K “urban” artist to get a US Number 1 and Signing for Cash Money! This is still an interesting listen…

Daniel De Bourg – Wanna Be Loved

Saturday, February 20th, 2010

This guy was on x-factor in 2007 he didn’t get very far however before the X-factor came the discovery of a track called “Wanna Be Loved”. It got some big support from 1xtra and then sort of faded into the background. This track got and still does gets many minutes of Ipod/Ear time…its simple I really don’t know why I love this track so much but I do – its very “love songy”?
