I came into the BBC London studios expecting that last Saturday’s programme would be my penultimate show - to be followed by a Fantasy Big Chill Ping Pong session with Pete Lawrence from The Big Chill on 22/7.

On arrival I was asked to carry on through August which I’m more than happy to do.

On the 25th June Arif Mardin passed away having spent a very long career as a songwriter/producer/arranger on a catalogue of great music mostly out of the Atlantic label. He worked with Aretha Franklin, The Average White Band, Dusty Springfield, The Modern Jazz Quartet, King Curtis, Willie Nelson, Laura Nyro and most recently Norah Jones’s hugely successful Come Away With Me. A whole series of radio programmes could have been, and possibly will be, made about his contribution to popular music. My small contribution was to play his production of Danny Hathaway’s gorgeous Love Love Love. Up and coming shows:

15/7/06 Joe Boyd
22/7/06 Gerry Lyseight
29/7/06 Charlie Gillett live from Womad
August 5th, 12th, 19th + 26th Gerry Lyseight
