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!

S1 Ep 9 – Messick Returns!

Click here if you don’t see a player.

I’m pleased to be joined this week by Eric Messick, long-time RFNE commentator on The Snail’s Path, focused on sustainability, environment, and climate issues. Eric is back this week to talk about the November 6th elections in the context of climate issues.

Our music has a decidedly oldies feel this week – from Sam Cooke to the Temptations and Supremes.

Plus, I talk about my own views on the midterm elections and the need for dignity and solidarity in the face of national division.
