Test Match Special with Richie Vegas (May '23)

Test Match Special with Richie Vegas (May '23)

Chart positions

This show was 8th in the global jazz-funk chart, 64th in the global disco chart and 68th in the global funk chart.

Richie Vegas cut his DJing teeth in his late teens - messing about with hip hop and breaks - before plundering his family’s record collections and forging a sound that includes soul, funk, jazz, afrobeat and reggae.

Test Match Special is an opportunity to showcase a selection of tunes that doesn't quite fit with live DJ sets, explore less-travelled paths and distill 20 years of musical musings. Expect lost monsters, obscure reworkings, stubborn earworms and wickets galore.

As the Ashes draw near, Richie steps up to the crease to lay down some glorious tunes to the boundary that even Richie Benaud would be proud of.
