CLASSIC RADIO RIP: THE SWING SHIFT, GALAXY 101, 29/8/97
Here we go then with another vintage episode of The Swing Shift on Galaxy 101. This one's from 29th August 1997, which means Princess Diana had little more than 24 hours to live.
Already, you can hear the music had started to wane from the 1996 selection - the last consistently decent year for R&B and hip-hop! But even so, the Class of '97 remains far superior to the output of the following decade. This instalment features DJ Diggz and MC Krissy Kriss of Soul Power in their regular mix spot, plus Bristol's Mixmaster M and JNR in a guest mix, alongside vocalist NQ.
