About the show

Playing tracks by

Lloyd Price Band, Jimmy Reed, Marvin Gaye, Bobby Bland, Dionne Warwick and more.

SoulSistas & SoulBruthas! I said goodbye to my father last week. He passed away after a long illness at the age of 70. We didn't have the best relationship over the years as he was a stubborn old fella. But, he taught me everything I know about music. The first record I ever remember him playing for me was Ray Charles' "What'd I Say." He said it was THE definition of SOUL! He was a private investigator by trade and a real ladies man. Because of that, my parents were only married for about ten years. My brothers and I affectionately starting calling him "Shaft" as we grew into adulthood. "He's a private Dick who's a sex machine to all the chicks," was of course the inspiration. He was very protective of his albums. I was never allowed to touch them for fear of filling them with greasy kid finger prints. Luckily, he held on to them and I was lucky enough to play them today. Don't worry Pops, they're in caring hands now. I said goodbye to him like always, "Shaft, I'll catch you later."

My condolences for your loss of your pop mine's been gone almost 9 years and while the depth of the loss has faded there are those moments where u just cant help but fell the crush. Nice that the vinyl is a bridge for you . Always enjoy your work. Take care

I really like or better love your mixes! Sad to read the really bad story to this mix - but at least your statement with this mix is the best way to say farewell to your dad. Peace from Germany

This is heavy stuff to read, but I'm sure your dad would have smiled when he could have listened to this mix. But perhaps he can hear it somewhere, who knows. With your moving introduction this mix sounds very special to me. My condolences and I hope you'll feel better soon.
