Secret Affair @ The Captain Stax Show

We are celebrating Mod Radio UK’s 20th Anniversary (first web transmission November 1996, isn’t it amazing?) so I really wanted a iconic band, for the whole Mod Scene, as special guest DJs for December. Secret Affair have kindly accepted my challenge and the songs they have chosen reflect perfectly the idea of eclectism behind this “VIP selectors” monthly show. Many thanks to Tracey Wilmot (my ambassador), the legendary duo Dave Cairns and Ian Page, Ed Pearson (Bass), Stevie Watts (Hammond) and John O’Neill (Sax) for the top playlist, I enriched with some Secret Affair’s own tracks (not the usual hits, just something as good, coming from different eras of the band). Enjoy!
