Essential Ibiza Global Radio With BA Episode Three

Posted on December 13, 2013

As De la Soul, once sang, three is the magic number. We think they could have been right, as our Global Radio show aired for the third time this week, with a special guests appearance from Chas Smash of Madness fame and with DJ duties, taken a firm steer of by Jo Mills. The show, which is brought to you by British Airways, also has a brand new feature, a restaurant reviews section, give you the up to date news on the places to eat around the island.

Jo Youle is our presenter on Wednesday nights from 8pm (CET) on Global, the biggest radio station on Ibiza. This week saw her unleash a guest mix from Jo Mills, recorded live at the islands newest super club, Booom! Ibiza. The brand new venue has stayed open through the winter in a bid to get to know the locals that didn’t manage to drop in during the season and, with a series of parties from Suite 780 that takes us around the world, it is doing just that. Jo Mills mix was recorded live at Suite 780 Gangsters, the Friday party of the New York themed weekend and the Ibiza resident that has rocked floors from DC10 to Pacha, once again delivers. Having dropped into the studio the previous week to talk to Jo about her forthcoming Suite 780 debut, Jo got the mix just right as the show, in association with British Airways, goes from strength to strength. Boom! Ibiza continues its globetrotting with Suite 780 this weekend as it heads to Italy for Roma and Dolce Vita on Friday and Saturday respectively.

The main guest of the night was a man much loved for 35 years by the British public and co-front man of one of the UK’s biggest ever bands, Chas Smash aka Karl Smyth from Madness. He dropped by the studios to talk about his new album, ‘A Comfortable Man’ (working title), which will mark his debut solo record. He has long since been in co-control of the bands writing duties, penning some of their biggest hits, so it was no surprise that he has decided to strike out on his own and carve out his own musical niche with this body of work and trademark gravelly vocals, which he partly road tested at the UK’s No. 6 Festival in September under the name Cathal Mo Chroi. Karl admitted that it was easier working alone on the material with less ‘cooks’ involved, “You don’t have to compromise,” he said. “With six band members there is a lot of compromise involved, and that is ok. It is healthy, but all of that involves conflict. I don’t mind a bit of cut and thrust, but working on your own material means that you get the final say, but at the same time, it is a more organic process.” On working with Madness on their new quirkily named record, ‘Oui Oui Si Si Ja Ja Da Da’, he agreed choosing an album title name was tricky amongst band members. “Our managers were exhausted over the in-fighting of the band,” admits Karl. “I thought after ten albums it should have been called The Ten Commandments Of Madness’, but our record company boss got involved and encouraged our key board players idea of ‘Oui Oui Si Si Ja Ja Da Da’, it is just a load of old compromise!”
