How cool is this..

Wednesday, May 4th, 2011

Tape recording uploaded to YouTube from Manchester Pirate Radio from 1994! Nothing like recording to tape then rewinding it so many times it get chewed up in the tape player!

Thursday, March 5th, 2009

I was born in the wrong decade I’m pretty sure of this. I love nothing more than some good 80’s music especially when it comes to older RnB. Cannot remember how I originally stumbled across this guys mixes – think I was searching for a track and I came across it in the track listing from one of his mixes and downloaded the rest is history.

All kinds of uses for a hat

Sunday, December 14th, 2008

These guys were around I think 2006 but it didn’t really happen for them couple of tunes were floating around at this point.
