Grant Smithies has spent much of the summer holidays rummaging through dusty boxes of 7” vinyl singles.

We’ll hear some of his favourite finds.

Brace yourself for the stoner soul of Donovan/Jeff Beck, some rare garage guitar action from Karen Verros, an affectionate Dylan parody by The Hombres, a hybrid of Middle Eastern melodies and Brooklyn sass from Habibi, and some ice cool rocksteady from Desmond Dekker.
