Black 2 Comm is a genre free radio show produced and presented by Paul Jackson. Each track connects to the following in a running order that switches between musical styles, dates and audio quality - often leading to strange and unlikely musical pairings. Avoiding the restrictions of mainstream radio play-listing and genre based programming, the sequence carves its own unique path through pop culture. It is broadcast live at 8 o'clock on Sunday evenings on Resonance 104.4 FM (in central London) and can be streamed from resonancefm.com.
Featuring ZZ Top, Autechre, Run-D.M.C. and many others. Cheq out this footage of Los Angeles group Rose Royce performing "Love Don't Live Here Anymore" on Top of the Pops in 1978.
