Ask the PM - You Tube Gordon Brown special

Gordon Brown has called on British users of internet video
channel Youtube to ask him questions. Kind of like Prime Ministers Question Time but for youtubers...

So I've made this response. I can't put it to him as it goes against his rules.
Apologies for the sound - the sound card on this laptop is awful.

The Ultimate Old School Class of 85 Hip Hop Collection

Courtesy of the blog linked to in the title.
This music got me into listening to late night radio
when I was about 14. I listened to Mike Allen on Capital Radio on
Friday nights then I found Dave Pearce on Radio London.
But I still preferred Mike Allen.
Anyway it was listening to these shows that eventually led
to me discovering John Peel show and Andy Kershaw.

The Hip Hop started to make way for a whole world and history of music.
But I still have a soft spot for this sound.
