Recorded from the early days of Kiss 94fm on Paul Oakenfold’s show. He credits himself and engineer Woody Wood. This one has the Conway Brothers Turn it Up as it’s foundation break. Features great choice of tunes, some pop and rock (One Night in Bangkok, Easy Lover) which gave it a distinct feel, a little different to most other mixes of its time. This recording is actually a join of two broadcasts, the original recording suffered interference so there’s a ‘live pause button edit’ at 1’15” when the mix was broadcast again a week later. Good deep 94fm voice overs in this one

London’s Kiss FM began broadcasting illegally on 94fm in October 1985 and soon Colin Faver played this mind-blowing scratch-mix late evening on 10th October. Heaps of raw roughness in this beautiful beast. Thanks to Colin Faver for playing the request and the Aero shout out – you are sadly missed…
