Mr Dales kiss fm radio show is the stuff of legend. Every week i would listen(And record....On tape lol). Whilst colin favors radio show leaned toward a harder sound,colin dale was playing more tech-funk,everything from detroit,chicago,electro etc. Now i have to admit i was a tad more into colin favors harder sound,but these days im more into colin dales,which in a way is testimony to his foward thinking show. A real gentleman too.

UK techno and undergound house legend. His outstanding abstraktdance radio shows helped maintain the profile of new techno music in the UK during the mid-nineties and elevated the tech-house sound by playing music from different genres. Highly skilled club DJ aswell, a hero of the underground.
