The following is from a Colin Murray webchat found here.

Katz : Whose song are you dying to play on the show?
Colin Murray: There’s a track called Isobel by Rhe Crimea which is just blindin’, but there are too many tracks I want to play to mention now. There’s four of us on the team and all our tastes come through. We want to make sure that we’re playing tracks that our listeners are picking up on too – which is why we set up Ill Communication.
