Don’t Panic!

13 02 2012


OK, this is a heads-up to all our friends …

Don’t panic, but nothing much is likely to happen here ’til March.
Hopefully you will still be able to keep up with us on our FaceBook page, but the blog probably remain quiet. Thursdays will still be new show days on Jazz Funk Soul Radio but there may not be Podcasts available for a couple of weeks.

So far this year everything’s been very full-on and now to complicate things even more Paul is taking a week in the sun.

Steve will be keeping things ticking over on FaceBook so please log in over there and keep him company. FIND GOLD HAMPSHIRE ON FACEBOOK PLEASE join the group and spread the word – thanks.

Anthony White, O’Jays and Detroit Spinners picked by Paul

Anthony White ~ Stop & Think It Over ~ Philadelphia International Records ~ 1976
from his Could It Be Magic album the title track of which was a cover of the Manilow song.

O’Jays ~ Livin’ For The Weekend ~ Philadelphia International Records ~ 1975
from the Family Reunion album written by Cary Gilbert with Gamble & Huff (the same team that wrote Me and Mrs Jones) it made 20 on the Hot 100 and number 1 on the US R&B – but I don’t think it got a single release here in the UK
