Yo Big B!!! You can't imagine how perfect the timing is< i'm just off to bed to read a big collection of Hip Hop Connection mags I just got today from a boot sale and this is the perfect complement.

Hats off to you mate, looking forward to this on a regular!

Respect, I'll spread the word!

Really good stuff Ben. Like the varied format, great intro & skits, the comedy interlude is an excellent idea, and don't even get me started on the commercial break! All this and a shout-out too!

PS Thanks for reminding me how deadly the drums are on Shaft In Africa, haven't listended to that in a long time.

Very much looking forward to next month's offering. Blogtastic.

REPO man, this mix is right up my street, such a great selection of tracks! Some of my favourites are included, i`ll be bumpin this for a long time!

Loved the intro, was that your daughter??

Look forward to the next installment son, keep em coming...

AGENT FINCH!

@Waxer - Sounds like a good bit of digging there. I never seem to find many mags at car boots any more. Don't tell me you found some single number issues?!

Ben said...

@Ramses - Yeah, I thought I'd spice it up a bit. Still early days so I'll have to see what works and what doesn't.
Shame about the quality on the Franklyn skit but I'd listened to the album more than a few times this year and what with the Bazza and James bits, well it had to be done really.
Shaft In Africa - what can I say? Deadly drums, indeed. Sample heaven.

Ben said...

@Agent Finch - I brought out the big guns for the first show. I wanted to keep it down to an hour so some harsh decisions had to be made about what I had to keep off. Wait and see next month for some more treasures.
Yes, I engaged in a bit of nepotism and roped in both my daughters for vocal duties. The long version of one of my youngest's voiceovers - Evie - included her saying 'can I have a biscuit now?' in payment for her work.
The King Of The Biscuits fam-a-lam rolls deep, ya heard?!

martinlfinch said...

haha i`m surprised there`s any biscuits left after daddy REPO has filled his belly.

Loving the show Ben, the format is spot on, dope tunes, laid back chat, jokes & the adverts are genious, i remember them so well (must be old!) A wicked fun podcast, keep it that way B, it works very well!!!
And thanks for the shout out!

AGENT FINCH!

Not going to comment on the tunes - no need to!

Liked the commercial break. Always hated that Kinder Surprise advert but this was handily offset by the inclusion of Kia-Ora. An advertorial classic.

Looking forward to the next one!

Ben said...

@ Ray - That Kinder ad always - quite excusably - freaked me out as a kid. I suppose this is a way of exorcising that particular demon ;-)
And Kia-Ora is a given. It was the first one I thought of. And it's reference in Simon Pegg/Edgar Wright's comedy, 'Spaced' just immortalizes it.
