It’s been a little while since we posted a guest mix so here’s something definitely worth waiting for.
As I’m sure many of you will be more than aware, Bill Kealy has been steadfastly flying the flag for R&B in my own motherland of Ireland with his regular ‘For Dancers Only’ event for years now. In fact, the club is about to celebrate its 9th bithday, a real feat and a testimony to the hard work and devotion Bill continues to put in. If you’re anywhere in flying distance of Dublin on the 20th September, get yourself along to what promises to be a big old party. https://www.facebook.com/events/527973047309321/
Bill also maintains one of the best and busiest channels on youtube, uploading literally hundreds of selections from his own collection over at www.youtube.com/user/cadlagh1. Surely Ireland’s most active and dedicated exponent of 50s and 60s R&B sounds, it’s a real honor that he also put this exclusive set together for our wee site. Tuck in and enjoy, tracklist follows.

Featuring a reunion of sorts of many old residents and affiliates of the Juke Jam proper. Promises to be pretty greasy.
A small scale hooley this Friday night.
This month we welcome guest spinners Steve Grinster and Trev Collins of the Boppinthe Blues club. Since moving from their residency’s in Camden, I’m sure plenty of Londoners have been missing a local fix of Trev and Steve’s R&B, Blues Boppers and Rock and Roll, so here’s a one-off team up at our own regular Blues Dance.
As usual the music ranges from late 40s through to the late 60s, taking in all kinds of wild sounds – all spun from sturdy old 45 and 78 rpm wax.
The bar pours award winning IPA’s and the like. We start at 9 and run through until 2, with free entry all night. See you there
