Craig Charles is an accomplished British actor, comedian, author, poet, television presenter, and DJ — an all-around funky Renaissance man. His BBC Radio 6 hit show, The Craig Charles Funk and Soul Show, is very popular in the UK. And, funky Americans would be wise to listen to it as well.

The British have always had an affinity for Black American music. Bands like the Rolling Stones revered American Blues & Soul musicians. In fact, Keith Richards says his greatest accomplishment is introducing White Americans to Black American music.
For us Yanks, we can always depend on the British to introduce us to the best Funk & Soul music! Start with The Craig Charles Funk and Soul Show because it will make you chuffed (which means delighted in British slang) 😉
