Big thanks to Leona Murphy for the 133rd "Straight From The Play Box" mix.

Leona is one of the founder members and resident at London's "Masters Of Soul" night. Also resident at "Crystal Palace Soul" and founder of the brilliant 'Crazy about Crossover' group on Facebook. A collector for more years than she would care to admit, Leona likes to mix it up and play right across the board, this mix is some of the stuff she played recently at the Chicago Togetherness Soul Weekender.
Other gigs coming up this year include That Driving Beat in Leeds in June, Dab Of Soul in July, The Runaway Love Weekender in Spain and the very first Vienna Soul Weekender!
