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 5th May 2019

Featuring Tom Waits, D.A.F., Serious Drinking and many others. Cheq out this spellbinding performance of "We Got To Have Peace" from Curtis Mayfield and his band in the Old Grey Whistle Test studio in 1972. They are completely in the groove, having turned down their amplifiers for this super quiet rendition. This stripped down version sounds much more intimate than the orchestrated studio recording on his "Roots" LP. Curtis's sweet falsetto, as heard here and in his previous work with The Impressions, would go on to influence countless reggae artists in the years that followed.
