Live webcam and radio stream from Cafe Mambo, Ibiza.
Watching Roger Sanchez do the Sunset at Cafe Mambo on the very same Monday that he was #1 in the UK Top 40 singles chart with his "Another Chance" smash was a great moment because it was also live to the world both visually and audio. Roger was so cool about what we were trying to do and gave the opportunity his full support. Thank you S-Man..
All through the sketchy Ibiza telephone system and a couple of computers put together by Matt and myself when nobody thought it could possibly work. We were just as surprised too, no delighted is the correct expression. If I had an iPhone then I would have filmed it for the future but the future was now set as BBC Radio 1 thought this was a such a great idea that they did the same thing every August for the next 16 years.
Here's the press release Nikki sent out that day in July 2001
