The Beat Diet, June 14th

I would really like to find a bangin’ remix of some Level 42 tracks. If you know of any, hit me up!!! Anyways, Level 42’s always been somewhat of an 80s pop guilty pleasure for me, ever since this album came out and I was sneaking listens from my older brother’s CDs. Now that we’ve moved to CJLY, I feel I have a bit more license to play some more pop-oriented songs, so they might sneak into the mix every now and then. It’ll still be a rare occurrence, but it’s nice to at least have the option, ya know?

This week, the show starts off in a house-y mood before dropping some uptempo 80s joints and then shifting gears into some hip hop for the last third or so of the show.

Happy Birthday, Prince!
The Beat Diet, June 7th

I had been noticing people posting Prince tunes all day in my social media feeds, so I guess is sorta stuck with me deep down in my cranium and I ended up spinning one of my favourite Prince songs near the very end of the show. It’s only after the show that I realized that June 7th was in fact his birthday and he would have been 60 this year. I’m happy I managed to squeeze one in, but had I realized it earlier, I probably would have indulged in a few more of his songs.

Other than that, a pretty wide-ranging show, as is becoming my habit on these lovely 2hr journeys.

The Beat Diet, May 31st

I left the first half hour off this show since it’s basically Side A of The Northern Touch’s Wasabi Tape. We pick things up with Tom Misch. Then it’s a nice mix of old hip hop and funk, straight Beat Diet style (with some really poor attempts at making some tracks more radio friendly.  So if you’re wondering why the sound cuts out right after some swearing, well… that’s why…).

The Beat Diet, May 17th

Starting it off this week with some Latin tunes before dropping into some funk and soul. Some hip hop and a Rowpieces bootleg provide the segue into some drum’n’bass and we pretty much stay there for the rest of the show, letting me drop a whole pile of classic jungle pressure.

RIP John ‘Jabo’ Starks
The Beat Diet, May 3rd

This week’s show was supposed to be a celebration of James Brown, but while doing some last minute researching, I came upon the sad news that Jabo Starks had passed away. Starks, along with Clyde Stubblefield, formed the backbone to James Brown’s band, busting out the rhythms that got people grooving and would later go on to shape hip hop music. Unfortunately, I didn’t have the chance to put together a comprehensive special like the one honouring Clyde Stubblefield when he passed away, but we had to bust out a few prime James Brown joints nonetheless.

Later on, we get into some hip hop… which ended up getting me into a big of hot water when one particular listener found the subject matter offensive and called the station manager. Action Bronson might’ve been pushing it for 2 in the afternoon. Still tryna get the hang of this daytime show, I guess, lol.

Anyways, enjoy:
