Gilles Peterson's Lost Tape Connection

Leo Walton, ListenLeo WaltonComment

As big fans of Gilles' work here at Amateurism - his 6music show on a Saturday afternoon is unmissable listening - we thought it would be good to flag up the fact he's currently in the process of archiving all of his old radio shows.

And, having started broadcasting via pirate radio stations such as KJAZZ, Solar Radio and On Horizon back in the mid 80's, before moving to Kiss and then the BBC, there is a lot of old recordings that need to be found!

He is asking any fans that have recorded his shows to submit to him via the specifically setup Gilles Peterson's Lost Tape Connections site - so please do if you have any yourself. Even if you don't, we thoroughly recommend using the site as a listening source as Gilles has started featuring a number of classic old shows/live sessions, most of which are set to private, so can only be heard here. Enjoy!
