Yes, Craig Charles, performance poet, Red Dwarf, Robot Wars, Coronation Street and a MASSIVE soul and funk fan. “When BBC 6Music asked me to do a radio show I only had one condition, it has to be a funk & soul show otherwise I wasn’t interested” And so the ‘Craig Charles Funk and Soul Show’ came to being right at the very start of 6Music, way back in March 2002.
The show is currently broadcast every Saturday night between 6pm and 9pm and is also available at any time through the listen again facility on the BBC 6Music website. “Since its inception I have been interested in all varieties of soul and funk music, without imposing any barriers and I am just as enthusiastic about fresh new talent as I am about the classic artists from the golden age of the 60s and 70s”
