The Soul Show, 12/18: Remembering The Roots’ Hub and Joe Simon | The Black Godfather | ’21’s Top 10 Songs

The plan for this week was to honor Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Clarence Avant

, aka The Black Godfather. Also, it’s time to feature The Soul Show’s Top 10 Songs of 2021. Unfortunately, between Wednesday and Thursday, we lost Joe Simon and then Len ‘Hub’ Hubbard of The Roots.

The Soul Show’s Top 10 Songs, 2021

Here’s the list of songs. This was the first time that I created a Top Song list to go with the Top Album List. There is some overlap, but it was worth looking from two perspectives. Two Pittsburgh acts made Songs, and one made Albums. Looking ahead to 1/1/22, Albums will be featured on TSS.
