Wherein we spin in tracks and tunes from Daft Punk to Dolly Parton, Tom Jones to Grace Jones and Cher to Chic.. The next run-out is 25th May - at Soundr HQ or Peggy Sue's to give it it's official title..
Should you fancy sampling the vibe of the night - dig in to Snaps 'n' claps a freshly pressed mix swishy disco and deep cut remixes..
