Gelale ( and I are very happy to share the 34th installment of our Funky Explorations series with the vibrant Kid Charlemagne from Philadelphia USA. We met through one of our honorary members, Todd Wheeler AKA Funky Corners, the guest of episode #3. Kid Charlemagne is a vinyl addict, a crate digger with a knack for everything Funk, Soul, Disco and Boogie from 75 to 85 so it's about time we hand him the keys to our funky explorations.

He's been running his all vinyl radio show "Cratebeats radio" for 118th episodes on WPPM and if you've ever listen to it, you've been blessed with big slices of his music knowledge and instant sunshine in between your ears. Check it out on

Kid Charlemagne goes bananas for the first 20 minutes

Gelale delivers apples and oranges until all sugar is burnt out
