You Are Being Served

So, another Bottomless Crates radio show went ahead on Monday just gone, the previous week's show having being cancelled due to ill health. As usual, the tunes were crispy and all was going well until the guests turned up.... Find out what happened for yourself (I can barely bring myself to talk about it and am dreading the damages bill)...

Artists this week included; Ronnie Hazlehurst, Sugar Bear, The Demon Boyz, Si Begg, Dr Octagon and Coldcut among many, many others.

Transmitting Live from Cruddas Park


Time again to seize the day/evening and grab the chance for an earful or two of last night's Bottomless Crates radio show.

This week, we all learned a little bit of French and Spanish, were powered by drum and bass producer and all round good guy Wills (and his kettle), topical debate centered on moles vs squirrels and we inadvertently launched our very own Xmas number 1 campaign.

In amongst all that nonsense and unscripted drivel, we played top, top tunes from the likes of;

The Beat, Katch 22, Luke Vibert, Ohmega Watts, Danny Breaks, Micall Parknsun, Phryme Rhyme Masters, Main Source, Sam Sklair, Lifesavas and Osaka Monaurail plus many more...

If none of that makes sense, the following links should assist greatly;

Part Two

Do enjoy, and please don't have nightmares.

Magic Animals

What links mild mannered animal voiceover specialist, cult TV naturalist and all round good guy Johnnie Morris with death-dealing retribution machine, hardcore revenge nut and all round uber-vigilante (in his movies) Charles Bronson?

You guessed it!

It could only be The Bottomless Crates radio show from the 1st of February 2010...

From Bernard Purdie to Junior Mance via Earthling, The Mighty Ethnicz and Gordon Staples then finishing up in late eighties/early nineties Wales with The Headcase Ladz (not mentioning countless other superb artists featured along the way)...
