Let the Beat Drop

Duration:
3 hours
First broadcast:
Saturday 07 December 2013

Wishing you "Love, Peace and Soooouuuuul" Huey boards the Soul Train and drops a killer tune from one of the biggest years of soul.
Huey will also be continuing to build perfect record collection. So far The Clash' debut album, and Prince's 'Purple Rain' have gone into the crate. The listeners will nominate another record to add to the collection.
Huey's got his 'meat of the week', vegetarians don't panic, it's just his record of the week.
And Huey will be spinning that same unique mix of funk, punk, soul, rock, disco.... and doo wop, a mix you won't hear anywhere else on your dial.
The start of the weekend is in the safest possible hands, and that's a fact, Jack.
