It is time.

Hi all,

I just wanted to let you know that beginning in January, I will be switching formats EVERY THIRD Thursday of the month to Rock 'n Roll.  We have been receiving so much great stuff here at the station that it can't be ignored anymore. So, three Thursdays a month? Soul music...as ever. One Thursday a month? Rock and roll... I hope everyone is down with that.

Thoughts? Email me at the address over there ========>

I need a writer...are you that person?

In my real life, I play a literary agent. I have a great idea for a music book and I am wondering if any of you out there have 1) a little talent 2) some drive and 3) interest in music. If so, please contact me through here and let's see if we have mutual interests. Thanks.

Jerry Wexler, RIP

I know I am late to this but I have been searching the internets for the best tribute and I think it is this one from Ashley Kahn in Rolling Stone.

So sad...Jerry Wexler made soul music what it is. My friends, Jerry Wexler was just like all of us: he put his pants on one leg at a time, but once his pants were on he made gold records.

Ok, now I don't wanna be a whiner here or anything but the image below clearly illustrates a decline in listeners from 12 until 2 p.m. Ignoring the obviously lack of quality of the show, I have no choice but to axe: WHAT GIVES?

A look at the Numero Group record label

From the Numero Group website:
Enter the Numero Group. Founded by Tom Lunt, Rob Sevier, and Ken Shipley in 2003, the three self-proclaimed "record obsessives" decided to approach the record business backwards. No corporate hierarchy; no company stationary. Just a big pile of music that no one had ever heard of.

The mission was simple: to dig deep into the recesses of our record collections with the goal of finding the dustiest gems begging to be released from their exile on geek street. No longer would $500 singles sit in a temperature-controlled room dying for a chance to be played. No more would the artists, writers, and entrepreneurs who made these records happen go unknown and unappreciated.

Numero releases are sound with substance, living at the nexus of song and story. Scrupulously researched, painstakingly re-mastered, and with an attention to detail that is unmatched in the reissue field, the end result is a top-of-the-line compact disc.

There is no "Numero" sound; instead, Numero offers an aesthetic. A shelf of Numero discs feels less like a "record collection" and more like a library. The library to date is a mix of thrift shop soul, skinny tie pop, Belizean funk, and hillbilly gospel. Numero makes records for people who may have everything from indigenous Central American drumming to Canadian chanteuses stacked next to their CD players.
Marion Black - "Who Knows"
The Arrows - "We Have Love"
The Web - "The Same Old Me"
Them Two - "Am I a Good Man?"
