Back in October 2011, I posted a piece here that recalled my reggae-music buying missions, during the early/mid Seventies, from Dalston Lane to Seven Sisters. Almost two years has elapsed since then and despite a couple of people promising me an invite onto their radio shows, to document the said journey live on air, it didn’t actually transpire. However, with a little enthusiastic help from one of the Stoke Newington massive we’ve now got the job done.

When the Brownswood crew exited for the Worldwide Festival in Sete last weekend radio producer Kathryn Willgress  and myself took over the legendary basement to cut this broadcast. We could have done a back to back mix with the tunes but decided that only a pirate radio-style show, complete with anecdotes, would do it justice. So, there you have it.. have a listen, read the piece… and enjoy a slice of lost London!
