saturday soul 02/05/09

Saturday Soul is a weekly show broadcast on Purple Radio. as the name would suggest, the remit of the show is present two hours of soulful tunes - both classic and contemporary. running for around 18months now, the show has been a great success and is much-applauded by the listeners for its suitability to the timeslot - and also its ability to celebrate classic/forgotten soul hits, whilst simultaneously highlighting the wealth of current, or more recent, soul gems.

last weekend i stepped in at the last minute to cover the show myself, and had a lot of fun pulling the music together. again, i had no mic - but i hoped the selection i chose would speak for itself, really. as ever, i've put a download link here so if you missed the live show and fancy a couple of hours of soothing soul, feel free to have a listen! there's a bit of everything in there, from legends like Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye and Ben E. King, to current favourites such as Mary J. Blige, Kinny and Angie Stone.
