Radio Days – DV#28 [The Final Stand]

#Radio The last outing on the radio had mixes from Brackles, Fitz, DJ Hoodwink, Jon Rust, Murray Gray and Lau. Fine times on DV#28 [The Final Stand]

They say that all good things come to an end. It is true of 2017, and so it was true of the Dash ‘n’ Verve radio show. On 11 June 2006 we dropped the fader for the last time, but not without welcoming back our favourite guest DJs from the past two years for some special send off mixes. We had Brackles, Fitz, DJ Hoodwink, Jon Rust, Murray Gray and Lau offer up their finest selections.

It was a good time for us and hopefully you’ve enjoyed winding back the clock and digging into our musical minds of yesteryear. A special thank you to everyone that featured on the show back in the day. We had a blast.

Tomorrow the new year starts and we’ll be there once again to bring you the finest selection of new music, plus a few throwbacks to the past. Happy New Year all.

Radio Days – DV #1

Way back when, well 26 September 2005 if we’re being exact, Dash ‘n’ Verve came into being as a radio show. Sadly for you guys we don’t have the recordings of that show, but we did find the playlists for every show we did.

Because it’s just not possible to recreate the wonder and energy of these shows as they happened, we’re going to compile YouTube playlists featuring all of the music played. You can listen in and if you like subscribe to the YouTube channel to get a sublime Sunday playlist to stick on in the background whilst you have your weekly roast.

So without further ado, here it is, the inaugural Dash ‘n’ Verve show.
