A slightly belated happy 60th birthday to Westwood!


His jeans have gotten tighter and his polo shirts have gotten snugger, but the Big Dawg's thirst for music stays unfadeable, baby. Ya host has already written the definitive tribute to Westwood, so here's a generic list post of 60 songs I've discovered via the Big Dawg over the years - a mixture of classics, personal favourites, and deep cuts.

Money mad aside, Timothy Westwood is an oxygen thieving cloaca. Only a matter of time before he's revealed to be another Jonathan King, Jimmy Savile or Edward Heath.

Always thought 'African War Chant' was some Westwood jingle. Dope.

I can get behind BBC firing everybody and getting new ppl to keep the station fresh but Westwood's one of those rare instances of a DJ staying relentlessly contemporary and hungry. Sloth was never someone who sold out venues and knew how to work a crowd he's just a bad to mid tier UK rapper who jammed his way in there somehow.

You should make an Audiomack playlist out of this

That would take forever and some of the big hits on here would get deleted in a day.
