Craig plays out the best bangers and best interviews from 2012. Expect to hear from the likes of Cody ChesnuTT, Larry Graham and The Third Degree, among others.

So it's time to say goodbye to another Funky year and to celebrate all that 2012 gave us.

Craig will play out the best banging tunes and cracking interviews from 2012. And what a year we've had!

There was the Fantasy Funk Band Special in February featuring guest vocalists from the likes of The Magic Number, Beverley Knight and Lisa Stansfield.

We had the legend that is Cody ChesnuTT in session for a very special performance from Maida Vale. Then there was, of course, our attempt to tell the history of Black Music in three hours featuring a select band of musicians.

Throw in guests like Larry Graham, Lonnie Liston Smith and a celebration of Acid Jazz records, our label month and - phew - it's been a busy year. Relive it all on tonight's show.
