SOUL (one) Podcast

SOUL inside Cropped

In honor of Black History Month and Valentine’s Day for the month of February “SOUL (one)” celebrates a compilation of soul, soul and more soul!  Nothing fancy, no tricks or DJ effects just raw talent.  The mix flows pretty smoothly throughout with back to back downtempo grooves ending with a couple ballads including “A Song For You” by Donny Hathaway.  Check out the playlist below and hopefully “your song” is somewhere in the mix.  If not I definitely have enough material for a SOUL (two) & (three) mix.  Hopefully in March & April.

Celebrate Black History Month… and have a soulful, Happy Valentine’s Day!
