ChesnuTTs Roasting on an Open Fire

3 hours
First broadcast:
Sunday 23 December 2012

Aw jeah. Huey's here with the jams in the jar, and love in his heart.

Cody ChesnuTT has released his first album in ten years, and we're so happy about it. He'll be joining Huey to chat tunes, and ride on lawnmowers.

Prince Fatty and Hollie Cook take us back into their world of dub, complete with echo and all the sound effects. As our latest dons of Sharing Is Caring they have risen to the challenge and not only brought in a great box of records, but they've also brought their dub FX rig. Turn your bass up!

For those more tender hearted souls, we'll be Doo Wop-ping That Thing once again.

And, as always, we'll be wishing you love, peace and soul as we turn the clock and get down with the Soul Train.
