Chris Plant

My Oh My

The title says it all when reading the following set list, My Oh My...or words to that effect! Chris Plant certainly had some records, monsters as most would describe them today. Today most DJ’s would give their right arm, a kidney and anything else they could manage without for a selection like this.

Not all his own discoveries admittedly, but nonetheless it is one impressive selection that would still hold it’s own in any venue anywhere today. The majority of the set is made up from a top 30 chart of Chris’s from between 1982 and 1984 of records he was playing at p[laces like Stafford, The Cavendish Suite, Peterborough, Clifton Hall and all the other top venues where Chris played.

He was and still is responsible via Kent/Ace records for some truly wonderful discoveries. Many at the time given to Keb and to a lesser extent Guy to give them more exposure, Melba Moore, Peggy Woods, Maxine Brown etc etc.

Much of the podcast is based on a set Ady actually played at TOTW, the rest made up of his other spins from that time, approx. 1985.
