Soul music has a legacy bigger than most other genres. Combining elements of gospel and traditional rhythm and blues with catchy rhythms, straight-up hooks and soaring vocals, soul is some of the most infectious and spiritually satisfying music you’re likely to hear, and on Soulsides, you get a solid two hour dose every week.
Touching on many of the various styles of soul, from the classic Motown sound with its strong rhythms, punchy basslines and hand claps galore, to Chicago soul’s lighter gospel air, through to Philly soul and its lush orchestral arrangements and doo-wop styled vocals, into soulful tunes from around the globe, Soulsides is your one-stop soul fix.

Lots on newer sounds as well as undiscovered classics with the 'two guys who love to boogaloo' as we celebrate our love for being involved with community radio through Radio Love Month at RTRFM - Tim arrives a bit allowing me to indulge the first hour but and then in the second hour Tim delivers a fantastic all 45s selection - a great 2 hours of some of the best soul around ... and hit the RTRFM www for a little donation of love (for your community radio) - Claude
