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 15th October 2017

Featuring Morrissey, Ghostpoet, Shelly Fabres and much, much more. Cheq out this footage of The Pretty Things performing their slacker anthem "Midnight to Six Man" on Beat Club way back in 1966. The West German music TV programme was broadcast from Bremen and aired from 1965 to 1972. The show was presented by Uschi Nerke (who can be seen briefly at the beginning) and co-host Gerhard Augustin who would eventually be replaced by disgraced disc jockey Dave Lee Travis. The band were known for having the longest hair in the business. Singer Phill May's barnet looks considerably longer than the mod cut that most of the studio audience are rocking. Guitarist Dick Taylor had previously played in bands with Keith Richards and Mick Jagger and even featured in an early Stones line up before quitting the group to go to art school . . . not the greatest of career moves!
