Soul Sam tends to play a strange mix of classic oldies and more modern

stuff in batches of three records.

He played things like;

Dells - Run For Cover - Cadet

(Opened with this - he knows how to get the Brighouse crowd on side!)

The Ringleaders - Baby What Happened To Our Love - MPac

The Group - I Dont Like To Lose - Prophonics

Bobby Hutton - Lend A Hand - Abc

Willie Hutch - Love Runs Out - Dunhill

(You dont think he played these two off the same 70s reissue on ABC do


Christine Cooper - Heartaches Away My Boy - Parkway

Bobby Hutton - Come See, Whats Left Of Me - Phillips

(One of my current home listening faves!)

Al Williams - I Am Nothing - La Beat

Eddie Foster - I Never Knew - IN

Mr Soul - What Happened To Yesterday - Genuine

Temptations - Truly Yours - Motown

Jimmy Ruffin - I Got To Let You Go - Motown

Jimmy Ruffin - He Who Picks A Rose - Motown

Jimmie Bo Horne - I Cant Speak - Dade

Bernie Williams - Ever Again - Bell

Ann Sexton - Youve Been Gone Too Long - Impel

(A BIG Brighouse fave)

Terry Callier - Look At Me Now - Cadet

Wade Flemons - Jeanette - Ramsel

(Play this if you want a Ritz instant floor filler!)

Betty Wright - Man Of Mine - Alston

Im not that au fait with a lot of the modern stuff that Soul Sam plays.

He did play - Bull - Let Bygones Be Bygones - which was a first airing

supposedly, after being played by Tim Brown on Jazz FM

Tony Banks is the resident DJ and host and usually plays stuff from his

current playlist;

A C Reed - My Babys Been Cheatin (I Know) - Cool

The Vibrations - Cause Youre Mine - Epic

Gloria Jones - Come Go With Me - Uptown

Millie Jackson - A House For Sale - Spring

Junior Walker - Tune Up - Soul

Junior Walker - Aint That The Truth - Soul

(Believe it or not - a couple actually line danced to this - and they

didnt look as stupid as you might have expected!)

Tommy Navarro - I Cried My Life Away - Dejac

Etta James - Seven Day Fool - Argo

Ace Spectrum - Dont Send Nobody Else - Atlantic

David Ruffin&Eddie Kendricks - I Couldnt Believe It - RCA

I think Ive credited most of the tracks to the relevant DJ, but one or two

may be mixed up and perhaps I imagined I heard some - I didnt take notes!

Just listening to Kev Roberts on the Big AM - we dont get much feedback


this show do we? - its a good 2 hour soul show .

Hes just playing Channel 3 -The Sweetest Thing This Side Of Heaven - Dakar

Whilst Ive been typing hes moved on to Ernest Moseley - Stuborn Heart -


Not bad eh!
