Trevor Nelson's Rhythm Nation brings you the perfect soundtrack of Soul, R 'n' B, Dance, Reggae and Hip Hop to liven up your Saturday night on BBC Radio 2.

With Trevor's encyclopaedic knowledge of soulful music you'll hear a show bursting with love for stone cold classics, forgotten gems you won't have heard for years with a smattering of new music.

Each week Trevor turns the lights down as he drops the BPM's and plays two slow jams back to back and we delve into your Musical Youth, this is that one song that transports you back to your formative years. If you have a song that takes you back to your youth Trevor would love to hear from you. Email with you song and memory attached to it.

If it's got soul, you'll find it on Trevor Nelson's Rhythm Nation 8-10pm Saturday nights on BBC Radio 2.
