So this is my return to the airwaves after a glorious month of cruising around the French & Italian Riviera’s in my new little toy – ok, its not so little as its 5.0lt Supercharged engine gets me to 60mph in just over 4 seconds & would carry on to 180mph if the authorities would allow it…The roof disapears at the touch of a button, with luxurious leather adorning every surface & 525 watts of B&W sound system, it proved to be a glorious driving experience! This brings me to the music & this soundtrack I put together to take me back to the open road…starting with Matt Monro as I wound my way through the Italian Alps & picking things up through disco inspired pumped up, pedal to the metal basslines. Then with the sun on my face & wind in my hair, I am heavenly inspired so take things to church with power vocals. The night closes in, so we take things down a little deeper to throb & hum our way through the wee small hours ’till we cruise on into daylight, picking the pace back up a little, with soulful vocals heralding the journeys end.
Sadly I returned to the news we had lost Bobby Womack this weekend, so I play out with a double reversion tribute to the man, who never quite had the success he deserved, but will live on through his musical legacy.
