#LunchtimeListens 001: Richie MacKichan

We met Richie MacKichan backstage of the West Holts stage at Glastonbury Festival 2016 where he was running the stage's press team and generally being a Very Good Egg. Not only is he a fellow music lover and an occasional spinner of discs, it turns out Richie is editor at boutique hotel specialists Mr & Mrs Smith – which basically means he's visited record shops in more far flung locations than most. When he conversationally summarised his musical interests as "cosmic country, yacht rock, soul, disco and weird electro" we knew we'd have to ask him to grace the decks. He came down to kick off the inaugural LunchtimeListens proceedings with a joyously eclectic mix of country, reggae and disco records.
