The Soul Show’s programming on WYEP and AAPRC for this Saturday-Wednesday cycle continues some themes and features a few new ones.
On the WYEP broadcast, I’ll continue the Sam Cooke 90th birthday celebration, including music of artists from his SAR label. During the weekly Pittsburgh-centric ‘Three Rivers at Three’ feature, get ready for Casaundra, Mathew Tembo and Phil Kirkland. We’ll spotlight the fabled Philadelphia International label, which celebrates its 50th anniversary. In anticipation of Black History Month, you’ll hear artists from the upcoming ‘Songwriters’ feature. Lastly, I’ll play some favorite Aaron Neville tracks to celebrate Birthday 80.
The syndicated AAPRC edition of The Soul Show airs on WTJX, Rhode Island Public Radio, WYEP overnight, and KRBD. I’ll continue the deep dive into the 2020 posthumous Sharon Jones album, this time with a Shuggie Otis cover. There will be heavy Boston funk from Stanton Davis’ Ghetto Mysticism, Ida Divine hiphop, and the folk-jazz of Terry Callier. Also, it’s been awhile since I played the Nigerian-German singer Ayo, so get ready for her.
See you soon.
