Tangents #06 w/ Jai Pyne – Compass Point

Tangents w/ Jai Pyne is a part history lesson, part cultural anthropology, dead set bangers. Catch new episode monthly on Mondays 9:00 UK & Ireland time.

The way the show works is that Jai picks a song or album from a particular era, and every time it’s different, this has reinforced for him that great music is made every year.
