10am – 11am: A Cellar Full Of Soul – I will be retracing the glory years of Northern Soul, recounting experiences from some of the legendary venues such as the Wigan Casino, The Manchester Ritz , the 100 Club and the Twisted Wheel, as well as all that’s making the scene so vibrant to this day. A fast moving, uplifting blend of the very best 60s rare soul that makes Northern Soul a worldwide phenomenon, and has inspired a feature film to be released later this year.

11am – midday: Rare and Well Done – We switch the mood to a deeper selection of my favourite all time soul tracks in an hour called ‘Rare and well done’. Expect the unexpected, a heady mix of esoteric soul sides from any era and as long as they are top quality soul, they will be featured in this hour.
