Bauer Media’s Magic network is to celebrate 40 years of Philadelphia International Records.
Presenter Keith Martin will broadcast two shows dedicated to the label this weekend, which was set up in 1971 by writer/producers Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff.
On Saturday 25th August Steppin’Out 6 -10pm will play the dance floor grooves and Sunday 26th Soulful Sunday 7 -10pm will be dedicated to the mellow songs from the label. Keith also has a copy of 40th Anniversary 10CD Box Set to be won, and Kenny Gamble & Leon Huff will also be choosing 10 of their personal favourites from the collection.
“Being a fan of PIR as a youngster I am delighted to have Mr Gamble & Mr Huff on the show and for Magic to be involved with this special celebration of the label, said Keith.”
