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

Black 2 Comm 4th March 2018

Featuring Public Image Ltd, The Marvelettes, Atom & His Package and many others. Cheq out this video of The 13th Floor Elevators performing "You're Gonna Miss Me" on "Where The Action Is" in 1966. The program was an American Bandstand spinoff in which Dick Clark's voice would introduce the bands but he would rarely be seen on the show in person. The Elevators, who were already ingesting heroic doses of L.S.D., look out of place among the clean cut audience, happily clapping along to their raucous sound. Singer Roky Erickson would soon be institutionalised at Rusk State Hospital for the Insane, electric jug player Tommy Hall hid away in a cave for a few years and guitarist Stacy Sutherland became addicted to heroin, imprisoned and eventually shot dead by his wife.
