With you on the reggae tip Ash – here’s a couple of MJ covers


i love pacman

As promised over a few tequilas, some peach brandy and a draft or 3...

Miss Ashlynn....from now on I’m going to be
Your African Connection on Friday radio....

Here’s a grinding tunes from the ghettos of South Africa...this is the real hood ladies and gents...its called Kwaito and its the beat on our streets.
Me and the TBWA party crew in SA got down to this track in the shanty town drinking holes, hard-core inner city clubs and the opulent lounge bars of the upscale life..yeah man..’when we wuz gangsters’...
TKZee – one of the pioneers from years back with this edgy, in your face track (that I fucking love)

And in step with Ash’s reggae influence of this morning, a happy ragga-style floorfiller that was kicking in SA last year
Gang of Instrumentals and ‘You’re My Number One’

Was going to stop there but I wanted to share Freshly Ground with you...a sweet middle of the road, jazzy band who’ve captured a mood in the old country that makes me all homesick...also pretty newish

(Ben says:
do some work prin instead of beautifully formatting 1000 word Friday Radio synopsys' !)


"I Wanna Be A Girl" - King Khan & The Shrines

Watch this and just TRY to deny the awesome might of King Khan.

"Jizz In My Pants" - The Lonely Island

If I have to explain why this is funny, you're just not gonna get it.

"Little Bit Of Feel Good" - Jamie Lidell

A man goes on a date with a unicorn. Weirdness ensues.


Happy friday!

Janis Joplin
Sinner Man
Slumdog Millionaire - MIA- paper planes


hallo hallo,
