The “V.I.P.” monthly event (as part of my weekly Mod Radio UK show) excites me in a special way, because it provides a cross-section of musical tastes by all members of my favorite bands, showing the influences of the single musicians in the line-up.
The resulting mixes are always eclectic, sometimes surprising. Here’s a collection of cloudcasts from last year. Thousand thanks to all my special guests, Corduroy, The Family Silver, Dodgy, Nine Below Zero, Secret Affair! The new year starts with Stone Foundation, tomorrow 20/01. Tune in!
