This month's podcast is a round-up of some of the songs played by guest DJs at Great Big Kiss over the last year or so. Every month I take photos of a few of the singles being spun by our guests, and this mix is my pick of those 45s. As you might expect from a year's worth of guests, the selections span the genres, from classic northern soul to hip shaking r&b, from hammond groovers to mod classics, from inspired covers to ska, latin, 60s girl groups and funky soul. The songs were played by Andy Lewis, Declan Allen, Kev and Linda, The Actionettes, Lucienne Cole, Debbie Smith, Andrea and Richard, and Christopher Stancill.

The next Great Big Kiss is on Saturday March 10th at The Phoenix, 37 Cavendish Square, London W1, 9pm-3am. Our guest DJ is Ian Jackson. More info here:
