For Cleo

Due to more "technical issues", no Restless Funk radio show last night. So I stayed in and played some of my favourite current jams for the cat. Tough crowd.

Andy's up over at Argyle Radio and there's some firm village favourites featured and put together in his own inimitable style. He's carefully sourced these choices from a selection of readily available compilation CD's available at your local supermarket and from youtube and spotify playlists. No expense has been drawn, other than years of coffee and digital anticonsumerism (illegal downloads), spending hours reconstructing vinyl crackle on a vintage copy of ableton.
