It was great listening through these, thanks for posting them.

Love that they were playing obscure dance records and nonstop dj mixes by the likes of Frankie Knuckles and Carl Cox.

Neil sounded at ease and at home on the radio despite his inexperience at it, I think he could have made a great on-air persona. Chris was very cheerful and couldn't contain his enthusiasm for his favorite records of the time. Really hits home when I think this was nearly 30 years ago. So long ago... they feel almost like artifacts of a lost world.

I wonder if the BBC would give them another crack at it now considering the current situation.

Still have this on white label. Took me months to track down back in 1991. Finally found it for £7.99 at Soul Man records in Westcliff on sea.

Friday, last hour. Could you tell me the name of the starting song?

And wow, it's nice to hear Neil introducing "Only the Love Can Break Your Heart" which is "released this week" ;) Good old times...

It was released as Feedback Max ft. TT, but it's actually by the Thompson Twins (I had to look that up too as I never would have guessed!) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pouQoaWraNg

I found a few great songs thanks to these radio shows. Wouldn't it be brilliant to hear them hosting a show again?
