BBC Radio 2 New Year and 2004 news and request
Hi everyone, received this note from Dave Shannon, the guy who organises Radio 2s northern soul progs.. too late for this ish of Soul Up North, so perhaps you might want to add your input... cheers.. Howard (editor - Soul Up North) Hi Howard Could you let your readers know that they can bring in the New Year with another special edition of All Singing All Dancing All Night. BBC Radio Two has asked Stuart Maconie to present a show to help usher in 2004, the third year in succession the network has filled this high profile slot with Northern Soul. Stuart will be on air from 00.30 - 3.00 on Thursday 1st January. Requests should be sent to email@example.com and if possible people should let us know where theyre likely to be partying as well. Our snail mail address is Room 414, BBC, Pebblemill Rd, Birmingham B5 7QQ Looking further ahead our next six week series begins mid March, probably Wednesday 17th but Ill confirm the exact date nearer the time. It has taken four or five years of hard work to win a regular place for Northern Soul in Radio Twos prestigious raft of specialist programmes and Stuart and I want to hear from fans what tracks, guests and features they want to hear. That way we can keep hitting the right target and secure the exposure Northern Soul deserves. Cheers for now and keep up the good work Dave Shannon (Producer, ASADAN) Howard posted up this on the email side of soul talk and reposted here as wants word spread!
