So after a few weeks delay last Sunday I finally presented the debut 'Ideal Friends' radio show on Ideal Clubworld Radio. It almost didn't happen... again! 20 seconds before I went live my systems crashed in the studio. D'oh! Still, somehow I managed to start the show on time whilst rebooting and I'm pleased to tell you, It all worked out for the best as it went down a storm and I loved presenting the show! (Incidentally, it's live online on Ideal Clubworld Radio and available worldwide every Sunday from 2pm - 4pm (GMT).

So what's it all about? Well, I treated listeners from around the world to new music, choice cuts and mixes of Deep House, Nu Disco, Hip Hop, Folk, Funk, Soul, Breaks, Nujazz and Indie. An eclectic mix,  padded out by features such as 'Moments' and my 'Track Of The Week'. Unfortunately, a few features were lost with the system crash (such as '60 seconds' - my weekly music and film review) but they'll all be present and correct for the next show. :-)

You can listen to the full debut show now (full tracklisting further below). Oh yeah, I forgot to tell you - I managed to get a brass band in the mix as well! :-)

My first Blog post and it's with great pleasure that I am announcing I will be returning to the radio as a resident DJ for Ideal Clubworld Radio.

Every Sunday I'll be hosting the 'Ideal Friends' show and broadcasting from Ideal's Manchester studio.  I'll be mixing up the genres a lot so expect Deep House, Indie, Mash Ups, Nu Soul, Chill, Nu Disco, Folk, Electronica, Funk and HipHop!

"Reaching out for the love of music" is the stations motto and I'm genuinely looking forward to my first show (24th November). It's 2pm - 4pm and I can guarantee you ears will love being taken

hostage.  :-)  I've also been working on some features for the show to keep you entertained (as if the music alone is not enough!) and I think you're going to love the 'Moments' feature as well as whole host of other choice cuts.
