About Dance Classics

Many years ago, well 1995 to be precise, I presented a programme called the Saturday Night Dance Party on Max FM in Southampton.

Little did I know that almost 20 years later, I would be asked to do it all over again. Having been nagged repeatedly to do so by one Simon Charnley, I eventually gave in, and on 6th February 2014 the first Dance Classics was broadcast on his internet only station, Clubland Radio.

As often happens with radio being the type of industry it is, it didn't take long before other stations started to hear what I was doing and asked if they could have it as well. Never one to turn down the opportunity to have more airtime, I couldn't resist, and so the programme gained a "network" feel to it, and started spreading across a few more internet only stations. The big break came in September 2015 when I was asked to supply Dance Classics for Cando FM in Barrow in Furness, the first FM station to take it. At the time of writing, late March 2016, Dance Classics can be heard on five stations, but hopefully soon reaching out to more and more.

The format is basically a good mix of dance music from the 80s and 90s, both of a commercial nature and a few of the more underground tracks as well, with the one feature, the "Big 12 incher" where I play a 12" version of a dance track from the era.

If you would like to have Dance Classics on your station, whether it is internet only, RSL, or FM, just drop me an email via the contact page and I will be happy to provide the download details.

In case you are interested, the programme is voice tracked in Myriad in my home studio, then published via the FTP server running on my home network.
