For this podcast we take a bow to 100 Club and 6t’s Rhythm & Blues co-founder Ady Croasdell, aka Harboro’ Horace. Although not a resident he did make guest appearances at The Top Of The World. He was and still is responsible via Kent/Ace records for some truly wonderful discoveries. Many at the time given to Keb and to a lesser extent Guy to give them more exposure, Melba Moore, Peggy Woods, Maxine Brown etc etc.

Much of the podcast is based on a set Ady actually played at TOTW, the rest made up of his other spins from that time, approx. 1985.
