Guest Mix: Professor Eddy - Summer Grooves  

Our guest mix comes from the Netherland's Professor Eddy, full of new soul classics it was apparently inspired by north western Europe's recent spate of fine weather. Eddy had this to say about himself..

"..From 1995 'till recently I worked for several local radio stations in the Netherlands and I always tried to play as much 'black' music as I could. Since April I have a daily show on the new online station Laid Back Radio ( You can hear 'Soul Searching' from 9.00 to 10.00 hrs CET in the morning and from 19.00 to 20.00 hrs CET in the evening. I try to play the best soul music from the last 40 years. For me soul music began in the mid sixties when James Brown invented the funk with 'Papa's got a brand new bag'. The people from the Laid Back Show gave me the nickname 'professor Eddy' because of my musical knowledge (well, that's what they tell me, probably my glasses have something to do with it as well...).

In the past I've done some mixes for the weekly Laid Back Show on the local radio station FM Brussels as well, for instance 'Slow Disco 2' ( or But the weekly Laid Back Show has now become a 24 hours radio station on the web.

The idea behind 'Summer Grooves' was to make a sunny disco mix. Some joyful tracks from the late sixties to the mid eighties."

    Anyone who has the balls to start off a mix with Michael MacDonald is alright in my book. I remember a beat electric soiree a year or so ago when this track was on heavy rotation! BT Magnum must have been forgettin' that he just played the track 10 minutes before and 10 minutes before that!
