This week's guest is DJ Honey; a well-respected DJ, collector & radio host in the Soul scene. She started DJing in 2014 & has extensive experience DJing in Australia, UK, US & Asia playing a range of 50s, 60s and 70s soul, rhythm & blues, jazz & popcorn all on original 45s.

Bang! on Mixcloud & also Girls on the Groove on London’s Soho Radio. Both shows regularly feature in the Top 10 Mixcloud charts. Through these shows, she found a way to highlight women who have changed the face of music and the world.

This show made me buy a compilation by BIG MAYBELLE containing her recordings of the ROJAC years. I listened to 23 tracks last night and was totally thrilled by her voice! The Harlem-based label was new to me and a revelation. Bill Dahl writes in the liner notes: " ... She'd waged a long struggle with heroin addiction that exacted its inevitable toll on her body. She also suffered from a worsening diabete condition as the years progressed. BUT those physical maladies failed to silence her fabulous pipes. ..." ... Thanks for the program.

Excellent liner notes! I’m always particularly torn between her Savoy years and her Rojac material, but then I think why do I need to choose?! Big Maybelle should be enjoyed the way she lived her life - by the plentiful! Thanks for tuning in, TSP.
