Family Lazer Show — Saturday

Family Lazer Show — Saturday

Family Lazer is a long standing member of the Radio 4A outfit, initially spinning tunes for the station at undisclosed locations around Brighton and Hove in 2004. His interest in records began in the early 80's when buying Ska and Pop from the late, great Woolworth's. But with the advent of the the Breakdance craze, he realised his love of electronic dance music after hearing the likes of Herbie Hancock - Rockit and buying the Street Sounds Electro compilations. House music and the UK dance scene naturally made a lot of sense to him several years later, and combining those influences and rooting through stacks of records over the years, you can now hear him blend a smorgasbord of Electronica, Disco, Sounds and Spoken word, House, Funk, Soul and so on...

Katie B — Made Up Radio Show

Katie B — Made Up Radio Show

Influenced by my dad’s passion for music, I first got into putting tapes together with him from the Radio 1 Top 40 on a Sunday teatime in the mid 70s. I kind of think of this as my first attempts at selecting a set. And it hasn’t really stopped since then!

Many phases passed in the meantime but these days I’ve landed around the jazz, jazz funk, rare groove, boogie and disco mark with a dash of world sounds and modern classical / electronica thrown in for good measure. To me there’s only taste, no right nor wrong in music and I try to keep an open mind. If it’s good, it’s good.

So, here’s to sharing music and bringing people together. Hope you enjoy my show.

Girl On — Sunday

Girl On — Sunday

Music and Radio are intrinsically entwined in my world. From hiding under the sheets with an old transistor, listening to Radio1 and pirate stations, to recording spoof radio shows to send to a friend in Canada.

I spent the 1980s bouncing around to local bands to hosting ‘nights’ at art school. In the 90’s the Zap Club was a second home. Then, Radio 1 commissioned me to make some reports and I have had my head amongst the air-waves ever since.

Dabbling as a DJ with my partner in crime Sister G, we played out in Brighton for around 10 years and hosted our own night as GirlOnGirl.

I love the sounds of summer, insects buzzing, the breeze in the trees, water rippling on the shoreline. As ‘GirlOn’ (Sister G has semi-retired)  my current show ‘Poolside Tunes’ features the glorious sounds of Alex Reece to Junior Murvin and Frankie Knuckles to andhim. There will be some surprises along the way with guest sessions and the occasional blast of punk rock.  Bringing a little ‘fuel injected’ sunshine to your Sundays.

Sergio Montpellier — Friday

Sergio Montpellier — Friday

Sergio likes an eclectic mix, leaning towards the jazzy, funky, sleazy and avant-garde. A regular participant in the Brighton club and festival scene in the late 90’s, DJ’ing in backrooms and doing visuals for stages, dance floors, chill out room and parties. Labels he likes amongst many are: Blast First, 4AD, Finger Licking, Ninja Tunes, Tresor, Blue Note, On U Sound, Cherry Red, occasionally mixed with the odd bit of social commentary.
Too-Odd — Friday

Too-Odd — Friday

Definition of Funk: music that combines elements of rhythm and blues and soul music and that is characterized by a percussive vocal style, static harmonies, and a strong bass line with heavy downbeats.

Definition of Freak: an imperfect coin, undetected at the mint and put into circulation. Philately. a stamp differing from others of the same printing because of creases, dirty engraving plates, etc.

Forget about definitions (especially the freak one) Too-Odd plays all kinds, world music to hip hop via breakbeats and jazz. It's more about the idea of us all liking great music and getting down to it and that making the world "a freakin funkier place" because we're all too busy feeling it.

Catch him on the second Friday of the month on 4A, and the first Friday of the month at midnight on http://1btn.fm/ which is on 101.4 fm (that used to be our old frequency when we were pirates.)

Lastly if you feel the desire you can catch up with too-odd at:
