Rod Temperton might be the greatest song writer of the modern age who was largely unknown to the general public. Not only was he responsible for penning Michael Jackson's biggest hits (including Thriller), he worked intimately with Quincy Jones to establish the iconic sound of the Quest label, and worked with some of the biggest names in the industry creating a huge catalog of amazing records and number one hits.
A soulful episode featuring the welcome return of Bell Biv Devoe, who just released a brand new tune after a long fifteen year hiatus.

Kicking off this episode with a couple of classics from one of Reggae's surviving pioneers Johnny Osbourne, who is scheduled to land in Australia next week for his first tour down under. I keep on the reggae vibe for a minute with a track off the new DJ Vadim album before heading into a heavy 80s Hip Hop set with plenty of raw drum machine sure shots. I detour slightly into some classic 70s rock before settling into some new release soul joints from the likes of SWV, Cool Uncle, and Brian McKinght - But not before ending with some…
