Originally known as the 'West Coast' sound, this is a 70s-80s soft-rock special where vaselined camera lenses, jumpers tucked in jeans, the 'Malboro Man' and wind in your hair while cruising the waves of Eastbourne (or California if you were from across the pond) reigned supreme. Join us for a 3 hour special, perfect summer day listening. Vangelis, Lani Hall, Hall and Oates, Seals & Croft, Stealers Wheel....
During Pride month we're here to broadcast loud and proud - honouring the unsung heroes from yesteryear. This is not a usual playlist of LGBT+ artists. Many of these artists may not be recognised as non-heterosexual. Many had to hide there sexuality through fear of persecution and/or violence. Many battled with their own demons. This is a tribute to all those who have struggled and continue to do so. It's remarkable that Stonewall riots happened in June/July back in '69. It's now June 2020 and it couldn't be more appropriate to celebrate difference, equality, love and understanding -onwards and upwards.
What is Mento? It's a style of Jamaican folk music predating reggae and ska peaking in popularity in the '40s and '50s from the Caribbean. We explore the musical landscape of the Windrush generation, with the sounds of Mento, Calypso, a dash of Joropo and anything in-between.
