We continue with our celebration of Black History Month this week with an infusion of Northern Soul. We probably shouldn't wait until next February to do another Northern Soul special. I think a Northern Soul special Rewind! is in order soon.
Even though most of the music played during the all-nighters back in the day was American, particularly from Tamla/Motown, we featured some British contributions tonight. As well as some of the classic stompers from the heyday like the "3 before 8" from The Wigan Casino.
Just a quick note, I filled in the last 15 minutes of Coolest Jazz Spot in the Rose City (the show before me) as he had to leave early. So I started the Northern Soul early to set the mood with;
r. dean taylor - there's a ghost in my house
dobie gray - out on the floor
tami lynn - i'm gonna runaway from you
the contours - just a little misunderstanding
edwin starr - 25 miles
As we have the last two weeks, we also brought you new releases as well. I'm so glad to see new tracks from The Heartbreaks and Evans The Death! Plus an LP Session from Field Music. Hope you enjoyed the show. We return next week with a normal installment of the show.
