Gerry Lyseight – All Kinds Of Everything – Totally Wired Radio – 14/12/22

I only managed to squeeze in a few seconds of Represent at the end of my November show so I thought I would give it a full play on this one. The release of a new album from The Unthanks is always a major event in my book. Other new albums came from Soothsayers and Grupo Lokito, alongside excellent reissues such as Joyce’s Natureza, Melcochita y Karamanduka et al

A bunch of new/reissued Acid Jazz releases were all very welcome; Granville Williams, Terry Callier and Jacob Miller took care of the Christmas festivities.

As you have probably heard Totally Wired Radio comes off air on 31/12/22. My first TWR show went out on 9/1/20 and this show – it turns out – was my last. I’ve enjoyed being part of the whole TWR story and all my shows (as well as my Phonic FM shows can be found at PS my show on Phonic FM continues …

Here’s hoping for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year for one and all.
