Listening to well researched compilations with lots of background infos and visual impressions from past decades and distant countries is better than watching documentaries. At least that’s what Philipp thinks. That’s why the March 2012 edition of UV Funk is all about those lovely Reissue Labels. And it features not only the big names like Soul Jazz, Soundway or Strut. It’s pretty likely that you will go direct to your local record store to gain some of those previously unheard Indoneasian Hard Funk or Hebrew Gospel Soul after listening to the show.

UV Funk is a radio show which is broadcast every third Friday from 9:30 pm to 11:00 pm on Dresden based community radio station coloRadio. Radio listeners in Dresden can tune in to the program on 98,3 or 99,4 MHz. Any other listeners can recall it here. The show is hosted by Philipp Demankowski and is all about stories, interviews and tracks out of the world of Electronic Music. But watch out! It’s in German.

This show was aired on 16th March 2012.
