Just listening to a particularly fine Mark Lamarr programme from last Fri / Sat morning. James Hunter live in session + the late Johnny Moore (of the Skatelites) as a featured artist.

As has been suggested on this forum already, God's Jukebox is about as good as radio gets at the moment (alongside those programmes hosted by our host of course!)

Well worth a listen.

I agree, because the very next prog on Sept 6th featured the Agnostic Mountain Gospel Choir live in the studio, with me skulking Svengali-like in the corner of the massive Studio 3 (?) if I remember rightly. A plaque on the wall commemorates Bing Crosby's last ever recording session...

He also has a brilliant reggae show on Thursdays - which plays mostly new discerning stuff . The reggae shwos are on for a while then he rotates genre - look @ website http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio2/shows/lamarr/

And whilst on reggae - the overground reggae don for me is Dotun Adebayo on Saturday nights on BBC London - who must have been going to the same blues as me back in the 70's - classique classique tracks - only I was in Manchester and I'm sure he was in London (from what he told me when I used to select African tracks on his GLR shows ) the power of the secret sound systems. (You'd have to listen again either Mark or Dotun as they go out at the same time more or less)

In fact Saturday nights on BBC London - or listen again - are fantastic musicwise - DJ Ritu, then Jazzy B, then Dotun Adebayo (even Garry Crowley before Ritu is good listening too!)
