‘Everything is going to the beat. It’s the beat generation, it’s beat, it’s the beat to keep…’
The Beat Generation is a monthly show doing its soulful, funky thing on a Wednesday morning from 8 till 10am. It’s a little piece of San Francisco with a dash of New York set to the beating heart of London where George Clinton brushes shoulders with the Beastie Boys and Bill Evans sips an espresso nodding along to the latest track from Omar. It’s two hours spent On the Road from Hip Hop to Jazz, from Funk to Soul and with regular features, Rhythm Remedy, Three to Get Ready, Crate Diggers of the World Unite and Kitchen Groovin.
