    The whole range of soul music with the possible exception of rock'n'roll style R&B. Especially partial to Philly, Chicago Soul and Southern soul. Also known to play endless jazz-funk when in the mood. Outside soul music, ridiculous things like running fell races of up to 31 miles - should know better at my age

  2. Pete Meadows returned to the airwaves on Tameside Radio last Thursday with a one-off (or so he said!) 50 Shades of Soul. I managed to capture it and the podcast is now available from my site. No messing about with podomatic, soundcloud, etc. Just download and enjoy at your leisure. Soulfulhorwich podcasts
  3. About 14 or so years ago I included a couple of Dave Godin & Frank Elson columns from Blues & Soul on my site. I finally got round to progressing to add to those and have scanned all columns from 1977 and posted them to a new page on my site : http://www.soulfulhorwich.org.uk/soul.html They are in pdf format so you can download and read at your leisure. I'll be uploading further columns in the coming months. I might ..
  4. I've just been redesigning my website so slight change to filename that will take you to the podcasts for both Soul Spectrum and Soultime. New link is http://www.soulfulhorwich.org.uk/podcasts.html Last four editions are available from the website but I do have all the old podcasts backed up along with loads more. Ta, Gordon
  5. Just got home and put the radio on whilst having my tea and heard this superb live stuff. It'll be on BBC IPlayer shortly and well worth a listen if you like traditional soul with a bit of a bluesy edge to it.

    Big thanks to everyone who ventured into the modern room creating a top atmosphere. Big thanks to guests Pete Meadows and Lawrence and to 45 Carat Soul resident Dave Peet.

    Clearout

    I'm having a clearout so have put about 40 singles (mostly soul) on ebay, ending Sunday or Monday. Nothing wildly rare or exciting but all nice n cheap starting prices so bargains to be had. EBAY LINK For some of them I've recorded 32Kbps samples and posted them to my site. Also some linked on ebay Gordon

    News: In The Basement Obituary

    Arrived today and I tend to start reading from the front so a bit of a shock. I wasn't quite there from the start but a quick calculation means I've been subscribing for over 12 years to what has become my modern day Blues and Soul. I fully understand David's reasons and it is not really surprising. I'm sure he will continue to make his massive contribution to the appreciation of the music we love - a contribution that is excepti..

    45 Carat Soul @ Formby Hall

    No modern room this month so looking forward to a nice relaxing night enjoying the tunes. May even get up on the dancefloor.
  14. Managed to get down for a couple of hours to support Les & Sue's venture. Never set foot in the venue before despite living here for 20 years and it is a cracking venue - would look great with 150+ in it. Musically, the sound quality was excellent and the tunes were of a high quality (although I'm not particularly partial to R&B, it was obvious to me that there was no rubbish played). Hopefully now that the summer hols..

    And now that I'm back from my little walk in the Pyrenees the second room is back open. We always like to play something a little different so show your face and try us with a request or two of music from the past 40 years. If it's somewhere in our boxes, we'll be happy to play it
