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 13th January 2019

Featuring the Yellow Magic Orchestra, Slowdive, Mercury Rev and more. Cheq out this footage of Dylan's press conference for the second Isle of Wight festival in 1969. The organisers of the Woodstock festival had hoped to lure the great songwriter onto their bill by placing the festival in his back yard but he would snub them and the late '60s counter culture in general. He actually left for the Isle of Wight on the 15th April, the day that Woodstock began, traveling to the UK on the QE2 with his pregnant wife Sara. He would perform his subdued set to 150,000 fans including John Lennon, Yoko Ono, George Harrison, Patti Boyd, Keith Richards and Jane Fonda while bustin' for a piss!
