A mixed bag for this weeks Hood Radio Show skipping between classic jazz, long lost funk and some filthy re edits. Check out the acapella talents of Jamie Woon on his track, Wayfaring Stranger. Its amazing what you can do with a microphone and a loop peddle these days!

Also take a listen to DJ Mellow as he samples the classic Syl Johnson track, Is it because I am black? Now, to be honest this one has been causing some debate as to which is the correct speed to play this at. I have stuck with playing it at the WRONG speed. Trust me on this…

In the latter part of the show, we delve deep into the pile, selecting choice cuts from Howie B and the Harry J Allstars. There is also a secret unlisted track at the end of this weeks show, a re edit running along the same lines as Deisler’s version of Norman Connors. As usual, I hope you enjoy the show. Please direct any complaints through myspace. The revolutions continue…


As far as I know, I am not a robot.
