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 7th July 2019

Featuring The Wailers, Death, Peaches and loads more. Cheq out this amazing footage of Black Sabbath performing at the California Jam festival at the Ontario Motor Speedway inna 1974. Sabbath had caught a lot of flak from the music press for their lumpen riffing but were still big fan favourites. Ozzy's big, theatrical gestures work perfectly in this setting, energising the massive crowd. The clip starts with hell-raising singer Ozzy Osbourne being interviewed. He says what a beautiful and peaceful event it is and promises to go on and play their music, not blow up the stage or anything like that. Ironically, it was the much better behaved Richie Blackmore of Deep Purple that would go on later in the day and destroy one of the TV cameras and blow up his amp!
