Alright Darren, I'll bite! THE SHUTDOWN? Explain! And do you ever play old time Disco? Harold Melvin, The O'Jays, Intruders, Crown Heights Affair all come to mind. How about Third World? And what is STARPOINT? A Web radio station or what. PIRATE radio?? Explain. Thanks.
the guv had a full time job aswell as the station to run.he also had a family.after 4 1/2 years he needed to spend more time with the latter.and to be honest,i'd rather the station close than see a mate lose his mind.it was the right choice to make.
i loves me philly music,and can always make space for it.the philly sound is what i grew up on (i was born in 63),aswell as motown and a bit of jazz.
fave group is E,W & F.but i also like the modern soul thing that's happening in the UK.
well it's an internet based station,also broadcasts on the sky network.
all you need to know about the station is in their history section.
as for the pirates,i used to fly the skull & crossbones for radio shoestring very briefly in '86.that was a blast,but the restictions where getting tighter & tighter.and the penalties where nasty.
what do play today.
