New releases (including re-releases) make up a large part of the playlist and are featured for several weeks.

John has a deep experience of the music and provides listeners with historical information about the music, insights into the characters and lives of the performers. and anecdotes of interviews with many of these great artists.

Updates of local gigs and UK tours are presented regularly and new books about the blues and soul are featured as they are published.

John has produced a number of shows highlighting the contribution that individual US cities made to the genre and more recently a series of 10 shows have been broadcast that follow the progression of soul music in its golden decade from 1962 to 1971.

John is passionate about the music and encourages listeners to look for the music and to find out more about its rich heritage.
