About the show

Playing tracks by

Carla Thomas, Al Green, Barbara lewis, Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell and more.

I spent the 60’s in a small town in the Hill Country of Texas, far from music’s mainstream. All we had was AM Radio parading their Top 40 over and over and over again. Motown and Stax and Chess artists were starting to get some airplay but only the biggest tunes that “crossed-over” from the Rhythm & Blues Charts.

My lifelong addiction to Soul Music really didn’t gain traction until I found myself on excruciating long bus trips for out-of-town high school basketball games. The African-American guys on the team would bring these humongous 8-track tape players powered by eight or more D-cell batteries. And tapes of artists I’d never heard of: Clarence Carter, Carla Thomas, Eddie Floyd, Johnny Taylor, King Curtis, Solomon Burke, Edwin Starr, Little Milton, and more.

So, thank you Harold and Freddie and Earlie and Shelly. Thank you for the infectious melodies, big brassy horns, close harmonies, and the raw power of voices steeped in R&B, Gospel, and Blues. This one’s for y’all.
