Dig Deep with Paul Thornton (Funk & Soul 45 Special) 080312

On this week's show we wade our way through a wedge of funk and soul 45s - old and new.  Expect a 7" special that joins the dots between Nina Simone, Leon Austin (a rare James Brown production), big funk covers, sweet soul sisters and breaks galore.

Paul really has dug deep this week as we gear up for the forthcoming Craig Charles Funk & Soul Club event taking place at 53 Degrees on March 24th featuring The Templebys & The Milk Live plus DJ selections from Craig Charles plus support from the Preston FM funk duo that is Holt & Thornton.  Quick links: Facebook event listing / Buy Tickets.
