Get set to get your wiggle on to some fine heroines of disco from Loleatta Holloway, Sister Sledge and Jackie Moore as our Home Service returns. Plus the lads get a look in as El Nino Andres, Sampha, DJ Soch, those J M Brothers, Route 94 and Max Duke deliver. And we get all fruity with Barry down the Copacabana. That’s what we call getting your funky five a day!

RadioReverb is the 24 hour community radio station for Brighton and Hove, broadcasting on 97.2FM, DAB and online, run by volunteers and firmly rooted in the city’s community. We are a non-profit organisation which aims to produce the kind of radio programmes you won’t hear on mainstream radio and be as all-encompassing in our remit as possible.
Here she is. A slightly camp and fantabulosa celebration of all things LGBT+ clubbing in our fine city of Brighton and Hove as we get our groove on for the first of two LGBT+ History Month Home Service Specials on RadioReverb. Enjoy some 1967 gems from Diana Ross & The Supremes, the appropriately named Dyke & The Blazers and the brilliant Tony Clarke plus some disco delights from Thelma Houston, Sylvester, Village People, Chaka Khan, and a couple of lasses called Babs and Donna. Add some 80s perfection from Soft Cell and house anthems from Ten City and Celine Dion – yep Celine Dion – and you have some historical grooves that’ll make our show momentous. Maybe. Click play, have a mincing moment and reminisce away with Wildblood and Queenie.
Now entering our 20th year as a disco, djing and you know what partnership this Wildblood and my Queenie know how to make each and the dancefloor wiggle. From right decent disco to proper lovely house be it the deep, dirty, soulful, funk-fuelled or jackin’ kind, us two buxom benders are looking forward to doing our unique thing on Sauce FM‘s airwaves. After many, many, many years in clubland, the release of the critically acclaimed compilations Secret Disco and Private Party II, journalist escapades with DJ Magazine, Gay Times, Gscene, Diva and Real Brighton plus residencies and guest slots at some of the UK’s finest including Wild Fruit, DSD, Sunday Sundae, Disco Deviant, Rebel, Sirens, Pussycat Club, Queer Nation, Club Shame, Candy Bar, Mad Cow, Go Bang, Vintage, Big Love, Bang @ Floorplay, Brighton Pride, Monkey and Wet Pussy (oh er!), the camp but credible double act that is me and the missus can’t wait to start a new sound adventure with Sauce FM. Expect us two connoisseurs of all things house and disco to deliver upfront wonders, marvellous classics and a sprinkle of seaside spendour each month with an extra special guest mix with our live radio show coming at ya from June 2013. Just make sure you are ready. Her Majesty Queen Josephine insists.
