BBC Radio 6 Northern Soul World Cup
BBC geezer has what may be an interesting show setup, all a bit mainstream tracks wise but guess that was always going to be so, info and link follow below
Steve Lamacq's Northern Soul World Cup
From 5 to 9 June, we will be crowning another champion in the latest edition of our, always popular, occasionally divisive, musical World Cup.
Back in March, 6 Music’s very own Jarvis Cocker, lifted the Alternative 90s Trophy, on behalf of Common People, when Pulp beat Primal Scream in a tense final.
Now it’s time to shine your shoes, and dust the talcum powder of your wide-legged trousers, as we search for the best Northern Soul track.
The winner will be revealed on the show on Friday 9 June. You can vote in the first knock out round until 5pm, Tuesday 6 June, on our Twitter. Read the full terms and conditions here.
