The Connoisseur Music Show with Mr Manhattan

This very special exclusive show is second to none. Playing strictly vinyl’s that has been collected from the Late 1970’s from great artists like Barry White, Marvin Gaye, Al Green and Aretha Franklin to name a few. The tunes highlight often forgotten rare tracks, artists and groups, mainly from soul and reggae which are made with stunning harmonies and infectious melodies with real lyrical content that captures the listeners attention.

The music played are from yesteryears and some more recently, some are not so well known but that’s what makes this show so special and called the ‘Connoisseur Music Show’. Around 20.30pm (GMT) a selection of beautiful Reggae ‘Lovers Rock’ is played to compliment the soul tunes it blends in very well to make the show really interesting. Its definitely one not too be missed by real Soul & Reggae music lovers.

I first started to collect vinyl’s during the late 70’s, I collected great well known artists but it wasn’t until I joined passion radio in 1999, firstly as a  guest on a good friends show that I excelled by buying more music then decided to accept my own show.

Mr Manhattan hosting the ‘Reminiscence Show’ now called ‘The Connoisseur Music Show’. I play on passion radio every Sunday from 8pm till 10 pm, playing back in the day tunes mainly from the 70’s and 80’s, to the listeners of Bristol, the UK and in the last 5 years, worldwide via online. During the last 16 years on passion radio I’ve played alongside various well established DJ’s at many music events. and venues. I have also played at wedding functions and private parties around the UK. I still DJ at venues to this day as well as doing my loving radio show.
