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.

Black 2 Comm 26th March 2017

Featuring Public Image Ltd, Dead Meadows, Aretha Franklin and many others. Cheq out this vintage footage of west coast jangle merchants The Byrds performing Dylan's "All I Really Want To Do" on Top of the Pops in 1965. It's a lip synch disaster on a par with All About Eve but I guess singer Jim McGuinn didn't write the lyrics and Gene Clark more than makes up for any errors with his tambourine technique. The band are certainly ahead of the curve dressed in their dog tooth tweed jackets, freak glasses and bowl cuts . . . you could be forgiven for thinking that Brian Jones had stood in on drums!
