ABU Podcast #56 - January 2016

ABU - The ultimate in hi-tech promo

I decided to cut down the podcasts to just half the usual running time. Now they will be a new running time of a slim-lined 60 minutes which I think will be just right so that I need to get the best use of an hour.
This could of course backfire on me but for the purposes of showing face, it will work, no question.

So, onto this month's show and there is a distinct jazz-funk flavour knocking around the tunes. As usual a bit of the old, a bit of the new and the regular oddness that makes up an Ageing B-Boys' Podcast.

I quite like the new running time. Tell us what you think.

Here be the tracklisting.....

01  William Stuckey - Disco Fly (1977)

New formato makes you take out the filler. Now just killer. Keep it up Benjamin.

What an absolute surprise and a genuine pleasure to see you knocking around these parts.
Yep, that's the plan - half the time and I can concentrate on getting great content to fill it.

Wherever you are and whatever you're doing, I hope you are doing it well, old son.

Keep it dusty.

Yo Repo
Love your shows, whether 1 hour or 2. And if you try the 1 hour format and don't like it, like really hate it & you come to think it's the worst format ever, and you loathe it, detest it and resent it, and feel utter revulsion about it, you can always switch it back to 2 hours.

I think there are good and bad points to having a one-hour show; I enjoyed the way The Funk Trunk and The Roots of the Roots appeared much earlier than expected, but I was less pleased with the repetitive nature of the second hour with its unwelcome "silence" motif.

It could be argued that, like many others, I have no right to pass comment since I enjoy every show yet give you virtually no feedback, but we'll save that conversation for another day. Possibly.

Nice track listing, really enjoyed your Powertrippers track (I literally used to dream of owning a 4-track recorder as I fumbled about with my two tape recorders and feeble record deck) oh and give yourselves a big piece of cake for the Gripper Stebson mention! Also some glorious production on Ashes To Ashes, never really gave that much of a listen before now.

Hope you keep your promise to retain the 2 hour timeslot for the specials.
