Gaz Fisher on Radio 4A

My great friend and some time musical co-conspirator Gaz Fisher does an almost monthly show on Radio 4A in Brighton, UK. He plays many genres, including Reggae, Dub, Techno, Minimal and Drum & Bass. I want to share with you a set from early this year. This was performed live on air on 14th May 2016. There's a half hour of Reggae/Drum & Bass followed by another half hour of Minimal Techno. An absolute beauty of a set! Perfect timing, perfect mixing and perfect tune selection. Sadly, it's only 128kbps, but it still sounds great. You can download it HERE

November 17th EMFAB

In this week's show I celebrate peanuts. Songs by them and about them. Also, songs about people who sell them. The star of the show is The Peanuts, twins Emi and Yumi Ito, the Japanese vocal duo active from 1959 - 1975.
The star song of the show is 'The Peanut Vendor' (El Manisero) composed by Moises Simons in the 1920s-ish. This nut-based madness was inspired by hearing The Peanuts for the first time in many years played on Bodega Pop last week. Thanks Gary.
On a whim, I searched for how many songs there were about, or by, or mentioning, peanuts. Hundreds! Here is my pick of them, arranged in a relatively pleasing order. You can stream the show at Give The Drummer Radio HERE . You'll also find a complete playlist, with many links to the tunes I played.
Here is the playlist in brief:
