4th MJ dips back into the vaults to pull out another Vintage cracker…Like every wrap you pull, You never know which present you will get!
Just what show will will you get! Tune in to find out.

11th LP Showcase unwrap the Artists true identity!
This show has history and lots of it! We all hopefully own or have at least owned an album or 2 over the decades, bought mainly for that one hit maybe! Or even an an elusive track that we have sought for so long only to stumble upon it lying dormant for all those years never actually knowing that you owned a copy all along. LPs albums Long plays call them what you may, they are magnificent and this show unlocks their potential as we seek to not only the very essence of the Bands and artists who fly solo! We do this for you live and this Christmas the classics come out to play.

18th The Battle concludes Christmas week and this show that enters the final stage pulls no punches, introducing two worthy finalists who have bopped there way here the hard way through some of the most fantastic battles,Now they are here let’s see who wants this!
First up on Deck one is CJ who is fronting the Not so Average white band, Whilst on the right is Andy who wants to slap whacko Jacko with some heartfelt family values  Jacksons…
Seven days before Christmas was no fluke as we have cranked up the rounds to 7 thats right seven deadly spins are coming your way, Who will be victorious you will decade by voting online, Oh yes a top prize supplied by Dove box Promotions worthy of any champion, Lets get ready to rumbleeeeeeeeeeeeee.

The 25th The Master J transforms into the ghost of Christmas past to present to you a very unique journey back through the decades to re-introduce to you not only the Soul music that was the backdrop of our foundations! But the most important alternative music from the other side of the popular musical spectrum that stood out from the minefield that was Pop culture here in the UK. I hear Soul and its origins in most music! can you! This Christmas morning I invite you to join me In and Out of Soul,

Autumn on Soul AM

Innovation is something that I absolutely pride myself on here at Soul am and as I introduce you to you a new season of entertaining shows over the coming weeks leading up to Christmas, I take a look up over our dashboard to share with you that this edition of the Stylus is being scripted from the passenger seat of a 2016 Ford Mustang as we enter the final third of the Vinyl Voyage that we kicked off some two weeks ago from a top layoff in Chicago that has launched us on a vinyl crusade to hit every worthy and reachable record store on route throughMC the Midwest to Los Angeles, Swapping vehicle’s from Armoured GMC SUV to sheer Finesse of the iconic convertible specially chosen to hug the 101 highway as best we can all the way through sun-drenched California to San Fransisco, This has been one hell of an education as we have pioneered across the expanse of the USA seeing first hand the cultural unbalance of this country that has no Middle class….Just sadly the haves and the heart breaking to have witness time and time agin the have nots! I have captured moments to share with you both via Soulam/Facebook blogs which were based on mainly Record store reviews and special moments, But for all those who missed the updates a special page is going to be created to review the voyage in its entirety so keep it locked right her here.

So what’s Autumn got in store!

Keeping in the tradition of scripting original productions and continuing popular returning series this October see’s a welcome return of the Battle of your Bands, Four winners of their Heats held back in summer enter the semi’s in the hope of reaching the finals penned in for Xmas! This time around though subtle changes have taken place, We now have 5 rounds instead of 4 and they have been allowed to choose new Bands that they love..Again each round scored by voting online so the more hits they get! The more hope of winning Simple.

Another very popular series that returns in October is the LP Showcase My main reason for this voyage in the first place was to capture as much original content as possible first run presses on their original labels cutting out their subsidiaries and sister labels altogether that were used for distribution overseas, This show will be so interesting new LPs discovered together live on air that will be incorporated into my collection over the coming months…Not to be missed!!

Now as I have already attended this years Halloween horror nights on this trip in L A, top laugh by the way as per every time we attend! The other show that makes its annual return this fall is the P.R.O.J.E.C.T Afterlife series that celebrates the Artists that we sadly lose every year respectfully paying tribute to them through their finest work that I own, With 2016 additions of Sir Maurice White of EWF and at time of writing masterful magician of Soul Kashif plus sadly many many more, Caution this show’s production has been known to make you bolt your doors and lock your windows! so you have been warned!!

Lastly I will be making a few changes to the way we communicate and also the way we deliver the podcasts and updates! But I will keep you posted..I have really appreciate all of your feedback and support during the Vinyl Voyage really you cannot imagine how much of a big part that you have made spurring me on to rediscover both my music…and more importantly Myself, Seeing and hearing my family and friends daily has meant the world to me and finally daring to believe in me my kin like best friend Andy for sharing my dream with me and supporting me throughout like a brother! He did that for me! I did this for you!! And return better for it and fortunate enough to have been able to embarked on a truly once in a lifetime event!!! The Vinyl Voyage.

Stay Soulful MJ
