The show: Shall we go a little retro?

If you need some fresh ideas and fresh music allow us to recommend freaky French label Circus Company. Free mixes and podcasts are available from their Soundcloud page or podcasts page. Fill your boots. Or iPod. Or harddrive. Or whatever.

The Mole (Circus Company Radio) mix from December 2011 is a real treat. Lots of old Motown soul and funk and a few surprises. Very classy. Got me digging out Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell records at home. And if you like those retro soul, funk, and electro sounds then you can’t go too wrong plundering Milk Crate Breaks.

The show: What peeps said we should have played last year

Today’s show 70’s rock, 80’s soundtracks, 90’s jungle & songs people tell us we should’ve played last year instead of the songs we did play.

Speaking of the 1980s, couldn’t resist sorry. Got reminded of the original last night and then this morning Woody aka Mudd of Sound Check reminded me of this lovely version of “I can’t go for that” as performed on Daryl Hall’s web TV show Live from Daryl’s House
