20 Years Ago Today: Stump Juice (5-11-93 Pt 1)

20 Years Ago Today: Stump Juice (5-11-93 Pt 1)

About the show

Playing tracks by

Marvin Gaye, Carleen Anderson, Donald Byrd, Sabu martinez, Unknown and more.

On this date, 20 years ago, a little club opened its doors. A simple idea: provide an alternative to the trendy, trendies. Headed by the Gang of 4 (lead by Tim Hancock), it carved a niche for quality & good times. The word spread far & wide; come with open ears, hearts & minds. Oh, and a good pair of shoes, 'cos you're gonna be dancing all night!
The Funk was given up, crates were dug and each Friday night & across the country they came & partied.
We built it; they came…………….

This is the oldest recording from the club I could find in my collection. Recorded only some 2 months after the club opened. I| think Tim & I took turns or I was digging between our crates. I'm not sure of the full track listing: I'll have to ask Tim
Enjoy.....................

Hey there Steph xx. Glad you liked it. It was a special time -we didn't know just how big it would be for us. I'm an old soul fiend at heart who listened to real early hip hop/electro stuff & had a family with diverse musical tastes - just sort of play as I feel really (if that makes sense)...

hi Alph, it makes lots of sense i totally understand, i am a sixties baby who had an older sister and 3 brothers that all loved, breathe and ate music, i started buying records and LP's in the late seventies just the usual pop and rock of top of the pops, but as we came to the 80's i had already got a little into jazz and funk music started to go out dancing with friends into town on monday's and friday's that is when my love of dancing and socialising started to take over a little, my brothers friend used to DJ in the clubs and would occasionally ask me and my friends to mind his mums house so he could go DJ at weekends, he had a super selection of import 12" and LP'S, i would bring friends round to his mums and we would listen to the music and i got the bug for soul, funk, jazz, and disco and just about anything that you could dance to, so i totally understand the love affair with music, i have learned a lot about music since then, but i am still learning today through people like your good self who share great music with everyone, my taste and love of music continues still today and i generally play whatever takes my fancy on any given day, so never expect routine, i can get a little whack at times, so i apologise for that,, glad you share your selections, i am looking forward to getting to hear more of them over time,,, will catch you up again soon, till then have fun and enjoy Music.
