Two for the late night crew! Very different tracks but both classics

One for the late night crew part 1-i'm actually a bit pissed off because I was looking for the Lyn Collins version, which kills it (but give it up for Dionne anyway!

One for the late night crew part 2-Sam Cooke---Music does not get better than this, ever since i heard it back in the day the track has been among my favourites-i highly recommend Peter Guralnicks stellar biography of the soul legend too (and those into their civil rights anthems could do worse than catch Phil Hope spinning tunes some wednesday in the Pav he is a fountain of knowledge-i studied Civil Rights in College and tied it to the music such as this, it is an amazing story and 45 years later it amazing how far we have come in the world--Now if only some countries would catch up!)

As Sam's great-nephew, I've written a more personal side to the Sam Cooke saga. He was truly a once-in-a-lifetime artist that is still missed today.

    About Me

    My photo
    I'm a DJ from Cork in Ireland. I work with RedFM, presenting Red Drive, The Hitlist and my specialist show, Black on Red. I'm probably best known for being one of the main hip-hop/soul DJ's in Cork and Ireland. I've been DJing in Cork since the early 90's in legendary clubnights such as Sweat in Sir Henrys, Mor Disco, Free La Funk, Yo Latino and also Jam and Jam Junior at the Savoy and the Pavilion. I've also held down long term residencies at clubs around Ireland such as Brown Sugar at the Kitchen in Dublin, U-Turn at Ri Ra in Dublin, Jazz Juice at the GPO in Galway, Thompson Garage in Belfast, the Soul Clinic, Dee-Bop, Meltdown and Mo Bounce in Limerick and i've played abroad in the United States and the U.K. on numerous occasions. I also write a music column for the Evening Echo and i'm a regular contributor to the U.K.'s Blues and Soul, the longest running black music magazine in the world. These days i run the Pavilion, a music venue in Cork, which hosts my Jam night every few Fridays also you can catch me at
