Our quarter-century is up! And to celebrate we had to commiserate! Richard Whittingham (DJ Dick), formerly of Rockers Hi-Fi is leaving these shores for Sicily and we asked his old compadre Adam Regan of Leftfoot to join him for an evening of exotic food, music and hot chat. Our third special guest, Steve Cobby, formerly of Fila Brazillia, had to be chopped for sounding too much like he was on speakerphone (which he was). Apologies Steve, sir.
Hot topics include: Brummies in San Francisco, an early Mute Records release, the infamous ‘Different Drummer’ poem, midnight jazz & the amazing ECM label (still can’t believe Dick did a remix for them!), John Peel warming and then cooling to Dick, a nightmare gig in Eastern Europe for Adam and finally DJing as artistry.
