Craig presents a Daptone Records showcase, chatting to founders Gabriel Roth and Neal Sugarman about creating the label and who they think are the future stars of the scene.

Daptone Records Showcase on the Craig Charles Funk and Soul Show. Daptone Records is of course home to the fabulous Sharon Jones but has also released records by Lee Fields, Binky Griptite to name but a few. We chat to founders Gabriel Roth and Neal Sugarman about creating the label out of the ashes of Desco and who they think are future stars of the scene. Plus we go Soul Mining for another record with funk or soul in it that from someone you wouldn't expect us to play.
