Chart positions

This show was 15th in the global northern soul chart, 18th in the global vinyl only chart, 61st in the global funk chart and 95th in the global soul chart.

A bit of a departure from our regular broadcast of midcentury rhythm and blues, brought about by two things. Firstly, raiding my mum's teenage record collection (hence some pretty scrappy quality recordings) and secondly, seeing Baby Driver the other day. It was great to see someone on screen so lost in their headphones - I once almost got hit by a car because I wouldn't turn my head to look until it was in time to the music, so I can relate.

With episode 24, I have strayed a little later in some of my selections, even dipping a toe into the '70s (shock horror)! Anyway, here is a little slice of soul, Northern Soul and funk to soundtrack your parties, barbecues and car chases.

As ever, head over to my facebook page ( to keep up to date with where I'm DJing next - if I remember to update it that is.

*something for all you fact fans, the title track was written by Alline Bullock (Tine Turner's sister) as a dig at Ike - so he produced his own diss song
