Beard radio gets funky - 18.2.08

We were supposed to have Reuben on to do a Joe Meek special this week, hence the majestic strains of Telstar as the opening track, but he couldn't make it, so I just stuck to my original plan of getting funky. Wanted to let my hair down a bit after Instal y'see. So lots of funk, soul, hip-hop and post-punk disco type stuff, as well as some uncategorisable stuff that is nonetheless funky. The Thai Radio stuff is incredible! Listen again.
