AUTHENTIC '96 FLAVAS FROM THE SWING SHIFT, GALAXY 101









A recent forage through the archives produced the following two recordings from the first year of my Swing Shift radio show on Bristol's Galaxy 101. These two are from 1996, and highly representative of the stunningly good R&B and hip hop that was still around that year. (They also stand as a sobering testament to all the soulless garbage that's now being put out under those banners!)

Links have been removed, so all trainspotters can try their hand at identifying the tuneage. As the late Frankie Crocker used to say, 'listen and enjoy'!
