Part two of a recently harvested classic BBC Radio London Saturday show again gives a flavour of some popular rhythms of the time.
This All Winners show is a good indication of what sort of tunes were moving into funky, soulful, and jazz music collections.
We hear from Graham Canter DJ at Gullivers Club in London’s West End and his personal selection of an all time winner.
This recording like part one has had no warts removed and is typical of home recording. The C90 cassette was a popular record source 45 minutes each side. Problem came when in a vital chart rundown for instance, the number one was announced and played 45 minutes and two seconds in. The C90 waited for no one. Our recording did not wait it just vanishes
Around this time the excellent James Hamilton, a huge black music fan DJ and journalist, consolidated his Record Mirror contributions with expanded coverage of all that was Disco. All that was Disco did embrace plenty of soulful and jazzy rhythms as the Disco chart for that week in 1979 shows.
James also included breaking cuts with his network of working jocks contributing their lists of newer material warming dance floors. This week included Sweetest Pain Dexter Wansell, Love Will Bring Us Back Together Roy Ayers, Lonnie Liston Smith Expansions, Positive Force We Got The Funk, and Jay Hoggard West End Dance.
Press the SAC90 (the posh cassette) button and join The Upminster Funk Travel Club and the Norbury Nightwalkers – bizarrely only had one member –for a classic BBC Radio London Saturday show.
