How Does It Feel To Be Loved? Virtual Dance Party
Saturday May 2nd, 9pm-2am. Please start the mix at 9pm

While everyone is on lockdown and self-isolating, we're running virtual dance parties, so we can feel connected and dance to our favourite indie pop and soul songs in our living rooms. Stock up on your favourite tipple, push the furniture to the walls, turn up the volume, and join us in a virtual party!

We're very pleased that we'll be joined this week by Elizabeth Morris of Allo Darlin' and Elva, who has put together an hour guest DJ for us. Her set will run from 11pm for an hour. The running order for the night is as follows:

Ian HDIF - First two hours
Elizabeth Morris - Guest set for 1 hour
Ian HDIF - Final two hours

Thanks, great once again. Is the foreign language version of gimme some lovin definitely the one listed by Sylvie Vartan? That came up as a different song when I searched the net. Keen to get hold of it as it’s amazing

How Does It Feel To Be Loved?

It's definitely the Sylvie Vartan version. It's this one here - I have a seven inch of it - it's not an expensive record at all. Loads of them here -
