Nate Valentino is embarking on a musical journey to discover the history of the DJ. Aided by his well read copy of 'Last Night A DJ Saved My Life', written by the authority on DJ History, Bill Brewster and Frank Broughton.

In this third episode we look at Northern Soul. Certainly a predecessor of the 90's rave culture, taking what was essentially bargain basement Motown and Soul records and making them the biggest thing to hit Wigan and Blackpool, (and then the rest of the UK). We start of with what is said to be the record that started it all, The Four Topps - 'I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch)' and then go onto some of the most popular records played throughout the Northern Soul era, finishing with an 1966 record that wasn't played until 1980, Marvin Gaye's - 'This Loved Starved Heart of Mine (It's Killing Me)'.
