Melting Pot


Generally at the end of the month we’re all on vinyl. This time I had to make a Serato “exception” in order to pay tribute to Bobby “Blue” Bland at the start of the show, an artist who’s work I appreciate but I haven’t ever really collected. The rest of the time is devoted to one of my favorite recent “Soul” bands, Myron & E (separate post to follow). During the first hour we talk about how the group got together and how they settled on their particular brand of Soul, with help from Finland’s the Soul Investigators. In the second hour we have quite a treat from E Da Boss, a guest DJ set culled from his 45 collection. Next week we’ll be running down the “Best So Far” of the year, so join us then!
