Episode #13

beginning in radio production at the tender age of 18 via her then university station, Miss Black Athena quickly began her ascent into underground music expertise, with an unquenchable thirst for new music and old. having worked in record shops, for labels, in promotion and dabbling in music journalism it wasn't long before she teamed up with her partner in crime and began putting on parties around London, before an unplanned move to the Greek capital where her momentum gathered and the Black Athena brand was born. typically English she is obsessive about music, obnoxious, and tends towards drunken hooliganism - however her knowledge, and quest for more knowledge sets her aside from your usual brawling bar room thug and places her on a particular pedestal of charm! you can catch her DJing around and about the Greek capital, hosting the Cloud City Pop-Up parties, playing twice weekly on Athens International Radio and helping out at the 360 record Store in Gazi; the timing was perfect for Jo to join me as this was the final episode of the series for the season...not your typical friday night extravaganza!! pulling out tracks that were sampled as hell back in the early days to shape the sound we call house music, some classics plus some fresh beats to sum up a year of endless turntable madness...
