Mix of the Day: Gilles Peterson “75 Years of Blue Note”


As it celebrates its 75th anniversary, the legendary Blue Note jazz label gets its back catalogue tackled by the also quite legendary British DJ and Radio host Gilles Peterson. Lots of classics in the mix as well as a few forgotten treasures!

We suggest his show often enough that you probably know all about it by now, but just a reminder: the worldwide show airs every saturday from 15h to 18h (London time) on BBC Radio 6. (Show Link)
