Chris Read Interview for HBSMA

HBSMA_400I was pleased to recently appear on episode #94 of the Hot Buttered Soul Music Archaelogy show, a banterful hour of chit chat and record playing broadcast from a garden shed deep in Zone 6. For those unfamiliar, HBSMA broadcasts to Youtube every Tuesday and past guests have included the likes of Mr Thing, DJ Format, DJ Bizznizz, MCM, The Cookie Crew, The Herbaliser and many others.

Check out the video below if you’d like to hear me play a handful of all time favourites, some tracks from my album and tell a few stories including why playing a Smiths record on a Saturday night Hip Hop show on 1Xtra will not win you favour with BBC management. Stay tuned right to the end for the riveting DVD extras.
