File details

Standard Show
This show or mix is ~3 hours long.
Different file versions may exist.


If you fancy some Stax-inspired soul this weekend, Craig is joined from Memphis by the lean, mean soul machine that is The City Champs. They've been described as "one part Booker T. and The MGs, one part Jimmy Smith, and one part Henry Mancini".

Craig also continues his countdown of his favourite tunes in The Funky 52; a listener takes control in Spinage a Trois; and another celeb reveals their soulful side in Secret Soul Sister/Brother.

Plus, we head over to the USA to check out the soul scene in another American city in World Funk Airways. And if that's not enough, get your dancing shoes on as Craig opens his trunk of funk and gets in the mix.
