Charlie Gillett remembered on World On Three

In the midst of the many tributes paid to the legendary DJ Charlie Gillett, who seems to be fondly remembered by everyone, is this brilliant show featuring Charlie and the equally legendary Manu Chao.

It was broadcast on Saturday just gone, and replaced the scheduled broadcast of World On Three – you can listen again for the next few days, worth a listen for anyone who loves music.

Among the many highlights are studio sessions from Manu Chao, and records by Zebda, Manu Negra (Chao’s old band)  and Tonino Carotone, who in our house is also known as  Tony No Carrot Only.

I hope that if nothing else, the publicity surrounding Charlie’s sad passing will bring more people to the music which he loved and championed for so long.
