Despite what the voice says, this is volume 16 of Slow Sundays (the heat clearly getting to me). This week’s show sees me back in the café after some time away. We’ve got racks from Permanent Vacation in the form of 6th Borough Project and Session Victim; new tracks from Acid Pauli, Soul Clap and Jamie Jones, all wrapped up with a tribute farewell track from Donna Summer. Enjoy xx
The Wilton Way Jubilee Street Party: 1952-2012
Presenters on Hackney’s micro radio station count down the eras, from the 1900s to 2000s, commemorating the best (and worst) of the decade with music, commentary and LFR’s distinct DIY flavour. Highlights include Anna Greenwood’s love letter to the 1990s, ‘Bumbags, Boybands and Britpop’, alt.cabaret troupe Fitzrovia Radio Hour’s 1940s radio plays, Prince Nelly’s Retro Chart Rundown for the 1980s, Charity Shoppe’s ‘Fuck the Jubilee’ special, in which presenter Ian McQuaid takes you through the anarchy and punk of 1970s Britain, and Roxanne Roll’s exploration of 1900s to 1920s music hall, where she receives a request from beyond the grave.

The Wilton Way Café and London Fields Radio present a special series of podcasts from 1902 to 2012 to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee ahead of their free street party on Sunday June 3.
Presenters on Hackney’s micro radio station count down the eras, from the 1900s to 2000s, commemorating the best (and worst) of the decade with music, commentary and LFR’s distinct DIY flavour.
Number two in the series is a Diamond Jubilee edition of Page One, LFR’s leftfield books show, in which presenter Adrian reads from the first pages of second-hand books. But here, in-keeping with the 1930s theme, he reads from the thirtieth page of some vintage treasures (sadly not first editions), accompanied by some rather wonderful music. NB: The dates mentioned are the dates of first publication/performance/recording.

Mystic Rock is British DJ / Collector of records of broad range, predominantly disco / dance music in its all forms, with psychedelic spectacles.
After 10 years as a techno DJ, 4 years as one of the original Club Kosmische DJs and 11 years in pop, he returns with The Thing, a night dedicated to playing the wildest & freakiest party music to be committed to tape:
For London Fields Radio, as it’s recorded on a Monday afternoon AND in a cafe, Mystic will be playing music to sooth and amplify your weekend hangovers, and in the spirit of the freedom suggested by the playlist he’ll be suggesting that you jump in the bath and listen to the show covered in suds, holding a glass of your favourite tipple, letting the cares of the workaday world disappear before the week has really even started, and drifting off into The Other.
Once you’re out of the bath, and fancy a disco, why not go here for more dance oriented sounds:http://www.mixcloud.com/mysticRock/

What do riot grrls do on their day off? Hang around pool halls and muse on the big questions, that’s what. Like ‘where are all the professional female snooker players?’. Also, In honour of any Hackney grrl who’s ever grown sick of neatly cleaning and stacking their empty beer cans, the Sisters get busted by the recycling man. Plus, a rare play of the London Women’s Musicians Collective girls Lottie and Ada’s anti bondage cover of these boots are made for walking.
