Harry James: The Wednesday Alternative Mix
Now here's a friendly, familiar face ready to welcome you on the most horrible day of the week. No it's not Monday but hump day and that's even worse… Harry James remains perhaps one of the most crucial figures in musical programming amidst the backbeat of London's clubbing and gig community. As the founder of SC&P he has helped champion a sound from within the murky basement of The Waiting Room and into beyond. Often ahead of the curve he has always held one ear firmly to the pulse of the city and has been influential in bringing through new up and coming artists and talent. As a disc jockey he remains a pivotal figure, they say a resident has the toughest job….
We invited him to take us on a whirlwind tour of his record collection as he steps up with a delightful mix.
