Touring the world one pair of headphones at a time...

Jun 27, 2020

End of the month shows sometimes get a bit abbreviated, and this one is no different. Three hours spent talking about the history of funk means the last show of the month gets shortened by half an hour or so, but still, a new show for you to enjoy, including our friend Volker's 3 Miles To Essex project, and their single now available on all your other music platforms. Enjoy!

With the passing of Little Richard last month, I decided I wanted to do a deep dive into funk. Turns out that's a pretty big topic, so this is a pretty big episode, and I wrap up in 1986, where funk starts to evolve into a bunch of other things. Take a listen, and if you enjoy and want a part 2 on funk, drop me a line. Otherwise, sit back and enjoy three hours on the history of funk!
