https://radiopublic.com/radio-free-new-england-6nbeKM/ep/s1!e58cb

In this week’s Marot Memo, I discuss the book The Power of Meaning by Emily Smith.  The book is terrific – here’s a link if you want to purchase or read a sample.

Also, if you like what you hear, please support the show with a small donation by going to anchor.fm/rfne and clicking on the support/donate button. It’ll help defray the costs of hosting, equipment, and production. I’m also trying to raise funds for a small 24/7 community station. Any amount helps!

You can also take a look at Radio Free New England shirts, mugs, and other merchandise by clicking the “gear” link above. I also receive proceeds from each sale of our merchandise.

My my, this is starting to sound like a ‘real’ radio show! Great rock and soul, old and new, plus news from around New England, This Week in History (with some special rock and soul birthdays) and a Marot Memo. (But mostly, it’s good music).

RFNE S1 Ep 15: Rare Soul, New Soul, and Great Oldies for the New Year

We’ve got a set of great music for you, from established favorites like Marvin Gaye and Fats Domino, all the way through Nathaniel Rateliff and Seattle Soul Band The True Loves.

The True Loves are an all instrumental band, with an album released in 2017 and a single in 2018. They’re a fun band to cook to, dance to, or to just close your eyes and listen. You can find out more about them on their site at truelovesband.com.

In the episode, I also mention Stax Records. They were a tremendous Soul powerhouse from the mid sixties through the seventies. Here’s a Memphis Rock and Soul Museum site put out by the Smithsonian for you to learn more (ie: Internet rabbit hole the heck out of this great music).

On a final note, it’s been a great 2018 getting back into radio/podcasting. Thanks for your support and for listening. I’ll have some big announcements, and will be looking for your continued support, in 2019!

Happy New Year!
