Welcome to Episode #120 of the Blue-in-Green:PODCAST which this week sees Imran connect with brand new member of the Blue-in-Green:RADIO line-up, Bob Hill.
It’s with immense pleasure that we announce our partnership with DJ, presenter, podcaster, Bob Hill and the inclusion of his illustrious Illicit Grooves radio show now launching as part of the Blue-in-Green:RADIO airwaves. Starting Sunday 5th February and broadcasting every Sunday 1-3pm, Bob will be bringing his discernible talents as one of the UK’s preeminent and distinguished tastemakers celebrating the innovative and the independent.
With regular features, the Amen Corner, The Sunday Afternoon Jump-Up, Back in the Day Belters and the focus on new, recent and future music Bob Hill programmes the show to bring you two hours of #GroovesForTheGlobalLEFTfield. Exploring Black Music through the prism of the groove rather than genre, tracks are selected and juxtaposed to reflect all that is wonderful, joyous and diverse from a wide range of producers, musicians, composers, vocalists and artists. ‘Selecting music for the show is a throwback to my early days of DJ-ing from the late 80s into the 90s when Rare Groove, Acid House, Drum and Bass, Jungle, Jazz, Hip-Hop, Afrobeat, Acid Jazz, AOR and various fusions would all find their way into my sets’, says Bob.
It’s an immeasurable pleasure to present our in-depth conversation with Bob discussing his early connections to music, starting out in radio, his affections for UK jazz and his own Talking Grooves podcast.
