The Craig Charles Funk & Soul Show

Check out the show here

Here's what Craig has to say:

The show is currently broadcast every Saturday night between 6 and 9 and is also available at any time through the listen again facility on the BBC 6Music website. Since its inception I have been interested in all varieties of soul and funk music without imposing any barriers and I am just as enthusiastic about fresh new talent as I am about the classic artists from the golden age of the 60s and 70s.

Here are a few of the names I have had on the show:- James Brown, Roy Ayers, Cymande, Marlena Shaw, Paul Weller & Primal Scream, Terry Callier, Candi Staton, Marva Whitney, The Roots and the Jungle Brothers as well as the leading players of the new school Cut Chemist, Sharon Jones, Osaka Monaurail, Amp Fiddler, Amy Winehouse, The New Mastersounds, Quantic, Ben Westbeech, The Apples, The Grits, JTQ, The Aggrolites, and The Fusion Experience.

I have also recently encouraged unsigned bands to get in touch and send in their demos to get played on the show and have had a great response with some seriously good music being sent to me from all over the globe

He's currently featuring a great track by the Haggis Horns
