SWING SHIFT UK SPECIAL, GALAXY 101, 21/4/98

Some 90s radio nostalgia right here. This was the UK Special edition of the Swing Shift on Galaxy 101, Bristol, aired on Easter Monday, 1998. I co-presented this one with a very bubbly Shola Ama, who was the biggest name on the UK street soul scene at the time. It consists of nothing but R&B and hip-hop tracks by British artists. Part 2 rounds off with a live freestyle session between Kent’s Lethal, aka Ill Jargon, and Kelz of Bristol’s 3PM Crew.

The rarest of things: a brand-new 2011 R&B track that maintains the soulful essence, and is actually worth listening to! Great stuff from Mary Mary.
