Another Something Special

Genre busting music selected & presented by Mike Shaft.

Many years ago, I was the Assistant Editor at BBC Radio Manchester and one of the programmes I put together and presented was Another Something Special.

The premise was quite simple… we would play music from any genre and the only criteria was whether it was good or not.

Now in this day of computerised playlists and specialist radio, this is pretty revolutionary.

There are stations who do not play pop, others don’t play soul, others won’t play country.

I don’t know what they do when there is a great country song or when an Ed Sheeran comes along and his music crosses so many boundaries.

When we launched The New SUNSET Radio, I had a special clause written into our Licence allowing us to have a show like this, which allows us to feature any type of music that we want.

I remember back in the day at Piccadilly Radio, presenting the American Express show. We featured tracks from the Billboard Hot 100 Chart. This opened my eyes to an unbelievable amount of music that I had never heard before.

Nowadays, it gives me enormous pleasure to play some of this music to a whole new generation of fans.

On newsunsetradio.com, I list every track played on the show and there you will see that we play everything from Country to Rock to Soul to Jazz and anything else that catches my fancy.

I will concede that this show won’t be for everyone.

However if you like the old days of radio when stations played all types of music they you just might like Another Something Special.
