We’re going to do something different on “Great Soul Performances” this evening, we’ll salute the music that has been the rage in the north of London for decades, “Northern Soul.” G.S.P. was born in London on VIP Radio and was launched by the King of “Northern Soul” Kev Roberts; who I hope will be listening today. “Northern Soul” is a music and a dance movement based on the style of American Soul Music, particularly the heavy beat and tempo of Motown. It turned out that several American artists had hits in the UK that frankly bombed in the U.S. but resonated across the pond. So you’ll hear songs by: Little Anthony & the Imperials, Barbara Acklin, the Contours, Doris Troy, Eddie Holland, Lou Johnson, Mary Wells, the Parliaments, Eddie Holman, Barbara McNair, Frankie Beverly & the Butlers, Roy C. and others. It will kick off at 7PM ET, 6PM CT, 5PM MT & 4PM PT.

After we finish with “Northern Soul” it will be time for “Great Soul Performances 2: The 80s” where on the playlist will be: Michael Jackson & Sir Paul McCartney, the O’Jays, my former co-worker at WWRL, Imhotep Gary Byrd & the G.B.E.; produced by Stevie Wonder, Carl Carlton, Billy Vera & the Beaters, Johnny Mathis, Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince, Fred Parris & the Satins, David Ruffin & Eddie Kendricks, Earth, Wind & Fire, Hall & Oates and more. It starts at 9PM ET, 8PM CT, 7PM MT and 6PM PT. I think it’s gonna an interesting and fun filled evening of music and entertainment on “Great Soul Performances” and “Great Soul Performances 2: The 80s” later on RadioMaxMusic.Com.

Monday 7pm: Great Soul Performances Northern Soul Special with Bobby Jay

gsp-nssThis evening, “Great Soul Performances” is dedicated to my friend from the United Kingdom, Kev Roberts. Kev is the man who turned me on to “Northern Soul.” He is also an author, who wrote the definitive book; “The Northern Soul Top 500,” as well as releasing several volumes of Northern Soul CDs. (Check them out on Amazon.Com) After the demise of the original WCBS-FM oldies format in New York City on June 3, 2005, Kev approached Bob Shannon and myself, as well as one of our former air personalities, Dick Heatherton about joining a new satellite radio station he was starting up in London to be called “VIP Radio.”

We jumped at the opportunity. “Great Soul Performances” got its start on VIP Radio. So, to salute all my friends and fans from the UK and especially Kev Roberts, it will be all “Northern Soul” tonight. Music will be coming from artists like: Jackie Wilson, Gloria Jones, Major Lance, the Supremes, Little Anthony & the Imperials, Tommy Hunt, the Spinners, Dee Dee Sharp, the Platters, Timothy Wilson, the Contours, Frankie Valli, Edwin Starr, Ike & Tina Turner and so many others.

Once again, we need music in our lives, in our ears, and in our hearts, to help blunt the tragedy of yesterday, June 12th, the day of the worst mass shooting in American history. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of those who lost their lives and to those who are fighting for their lives in the hospital, and all the citizens of the City of Orlando and the State of Florida. Their pain and their suffering, is our pain and suffering.

We’ll try and have some fun beginning at 7PM ET, 6PM CT, 5PM MT & 4PM PT. I hope you’ll be listening Kev Roberts. I’ll try and get it right. “Northern Soul” this evening at the home of the “Greatest Hits of the 60s, 70s, & 80s,” RadioMaxMusic.Com.
