Part one of our two part introduction to the music that we are into (and hopefully you will be too). Obviously, it was a difficult task and there can be no 'definitive' list. There are many painful omissions - how is it possible to compress the huge range of fantastic music out there into two radio programs? Well, to put it bluntly, it isn't! However, it is possible to give you a brief taste of the musical range that we will be exploring in the future. Some obscurist snobs may say we have made some obvious choices - admittedly, the likes of 'Zombie' for Fela Kuti and 'Smokestack Lightning' for Howling Wolf are the most obvious choices for those particular artists. However, we make no apologies for this - a classic is a classic for a good reason!

We hope you enjoy our first excursion into the sonic stratosphere of the Mixcloud community. And make sure you join us for part two next month!
