NORTHERN SOUL NEW YEAR - FREESTYLE!

NORTHERN SOUL NEW YEAR - FREESTYLE!

Chart positions

This show was 1st in the global northern soul chart.

Well after a month of nothing but “Wigan” based podcasts, I took this opportunity to go freestyle, not really sure what that actually means but basically I just played anything I wanted to with no theme or running order. I also kept the Wigan stuff to a minimum so most (but not all) records on here are either sleepers, or where big AFTER Wigan closed, so anyone who thinks Northern Soul died in 1981, I hope this will convince you otherwise. I think the last 30 minutes are so is one of the best podcasts I’ve ever done. But I’d had about 5 pints and 3 cans by then, so I would do!

It's a surprisingly good record from an unexpected source (a bit like the Bill Oddie one on SS). Lena Horne meant the Light programme/ Radio 2 MOR jazz until I heard this!

Some cracking tunes.
Of the ones I've never heard before, Ernestine Anderson, Lena Horne and George Freeman stand out as special.
