I saw a couple of comments trickle in over the last few months. This blog has moved to . Recently archived radio programs, including guest mixes and event news is available over at that domain.





Many months have passed since the inception of this mix project, so we’re very happy to finally share!! Peace to 1 year of broadcasting A Downtown Affair over the Tri-State and across the world.

Mike McGill and Tackleberry present Hope For Love, a selection of records touching upon anecdotes of courtship and infidelity while keeping in mind those lonely nights of mid-tempo dancing and fast romancing. A digest of music resolved to stimulate bodies, helping them move like fluids across desolate dance-floors from decades past.

Let the sleazy serenades play while hearts and drums break; all for love’s sake.

Hope for Love.

It’s on…

Come by to pick up a copy of the new mix Tackleberry (Alex B.) and myself just finished, sprayed, ‘n pressed. I will post a digital copy over the weekend.

Alex B. steps in, and provides an excellent selection of records from across the funk/disco spectrum, dropping a few boogie rap records along the way. You can view the playlist and listen to last week’s show here. Dig it? Come out to Serious Business; he’ll be playing records alongside myself, Joe Williams and Jamie Dubs. The Senate is sitting this session out.

On Friday, tune in for a special guest DJ set from Melodious Thunk. He’s runs Infinity Records a gem of a shop over on Long Island that keeps a great stock of dance 12″s. I’m excited to see what he brings for the program. 89.1FM/, Friday Aug. 1st 10:30pm-1:00am.

Continuing to build momentum over seven months now!

That’s right; we’re up and at it again. Come by Savalas this Thursday as we continue to play all those essential boogie, disco, & electro-funk records. Many freshly picked since the last gathering. Things kick off at 10pm and go ’til 4am. Arrive early as we ease things in with soul & funk before lifting off around midnight.

Check for recordings from previous nights.

I’m happy to welcome Alex Biedermann as my new co-host on A Downtown Affair. A longtime friend and collaborator, Alex B has a discerning taste in funk, soul, and boogie. He’s introduced me to a lot of records that I’ve played on the program, and I’m excited for him to sift through his collection and bring a fresh vibe to the show. He’ll be hosting tonight’s show, and will continue to rotate alongside myself. Tune in tonight! 89.1 FM in NYC, and worldwide.

Keep on the lookout for a soon-to-be-released promo mix that we have been working on for the past few months. Next week look out for a guest DJ set by Melodious Thunk!
