Vinney: DJ/ Radio host/ Comedian/ Podcaster.
30 years of DJing on and off-air. Have been known to kick trance on a Thai beach to a thousand people. More often playing Michael Bublé at a wedding in Worthing.

This show: One DJ. One Mic. One sampler (with lots of buttons to fire audio-nostalgia). One set of turntables. Lot's to say.

40,000 years ago with the first instrument known to mankind; the bone-flute (WAAAAHAY! Excuse me).
Since then: which Canadian invented the organ? Which French guy started sampling in the 1940’s? Which Japanese dude invented devices that accidentally changed the face of music when they were found in a Chicago pawn shop? What's the most sampled and abused drum-loop ever (from NWA to The Prodigy to Oasis) - and why did the drummer die penniless?

All this with a dedication to making you laugh. In a cool pub.
