Greetings all.

The Funky16Corners 2019 Allnighter/Pledge Drive continues!

In continuance of shaking things up a little, I’m going to be presenting compilations of the guest mixes that my favorite selectors have brought to the Pledge Drive/Allnighter over the years.

This week we have six blazing mixes from the man behind Fufu Radio and Fufu Stew, the mighty Vincent the Soul Chef!

Vincent is a key part of the Funky16Corners Radio family and it is always a pleasure to hear whatever he’s been mixing up in the kitchen!


A Note on the 2019 Pledge Drive

The focus on using Patreon to raise money to pay the bills around here (paying for server space/bandwidth and broadcast fees) has proven to make a lot of sense, moreso than the previously used Paypal model.

If you dig any of the stuff I do here, any of the radio shows, or the mix archives, or even if you’re one of the few that still read the blog posts, please consider signing up for Patreon and making a small, recurring, monthly donation of a few dollars.

You can click on the link below.

It’s pretty simple, very safe and a great way to keep Funky16Corners up and running for another year.

So thanks in advance, and enjoy the tunes!

Keep the Faith



The pledging will continue this year with Patreon (click here or on the logo below to go to the Funky16Corners page) , where you will be able to spread your contributions out over the entire year, which will help cover the ongoing server/broadcast/hardware expenses. This year has seen the move to 100 percent live broadcasting (Mixlr.com/Funky16corners)  and continued hardware and software upgrades at Funky16Corners central, to keep the radio/podcasting experience as seamless and groovy as possible. So please dig deep so we can continue to do the same, and if you’re already a Patreon donor, please accept my heartfelt thanks!



I am also including a Paypal donation button (below) if you’d rather donate in a lump sum instead of the rolling donation in Patreon.


So, download and dig the mixes, keep digging the radio shows!

Also, make sure to follow Funky16Corners on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

Keep the faith
