Surrey Hills Mixtape

Hosted by:


  • All the other genres
  • Americana
  • Blues
  • Gospel

If, like me, you struggle to decide what to listen to next, why not listen to everything? Ok, not exactly everything, but a carefully curated selection of songs from every decade of the first hundred years of recorded music, along with a load of great new and recent releases. Hope you enjoy it.

Thursdays, 7-9pm – everything from Doris Day to The Fall

I always like to mark the celebration of Mardi Gras each spring by playing some music from New Orleans, so we did a bit of that this week – Professor Longhair, the Hawketts, Fats Domino and Chubby Newsome. We listened to some great music from 1978 and kept up to date with Big Thief, The Lemonheads, Beirut, Julia Jacklin, Robert Forster and Edwyn Collins.

This week we travelled back to 1977 and a mix of sounds and styles from Television, Steely Dan, Ian Dury, The Stranglers, The Clash, Buzzcocks and Bowie. For times of insecurity and nonsense we responded with a firm “It’s Alright”, and heard some wonderful new music from Aldous Harding, Durand Jones and the Indications, Snapped Ankles and the Lemonheads. Oh, and there was Lulu!
