'IDEAL FRIENDS' DEBUT SHOW (25/11/12)

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! :-)
