Mike Shaft -Takin’ Care of Business


The infamous TCOB (Takin’ Care of Business), Mike Shaft’s influential Soul, Dance, and Funk show, on Piccadilly Radio throughout the 80’s.


Mike Shaft – TCOB


This 2nd show features a nice conversion about the Manchester club scene around late 1985 with Chad Jackson. The tape was in a bad condition, and a lot of Mike Shaft talking has been edited out which is a real shame.
