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 19th January 2020

Featuring Dr John Cooper Clarke, John Lennon, Baby Washington and much more. Cheq out this live footage of The Adverts taken from German director Wolfgang Blud's 1979 film "Brennende Langeweile" (Bored Teenagers) featuring reluctant punk pin up Gaye Advert. The most interesting part of the footage is at the beginning where the bass player is asked by a German reporter if there are any problems with her being a sex object. The not so shy Gaye had already posed for pornographic magazines by this point. The live footage is pretty unforgettable, though all you punk rock trainspotters will be excited to see ex Clash / Pistols roadie "Rodent" loitering in the wings. He played a part in the films plot line and would eventually bag more minor film roles and settle in Germany. The Passions 1981 hit, "I'm In Love With A German Film Star" was rumoured to have been written about him.
