The Soul Of London…

In Daily Musings on March 29, 2012 at 3:09 pm

Another extremely busy day today, so here is another short and  sweet post.

To help my busy days go by, I’m always tuned in to The Sound of London Radio (TSOL).  This is my all time favourite music radio station, which is streamed live online. TSOL plays all the old school jams of yester year which I raved and listened to back home in London. I don’t feel so homesick while listening to them.

TSOL plays Lovers Rock (mostly Brits will understand what lover’s rock is; click the link to find out more), old school reggae, soul from the  60’s,80’s up to the present. TSOL plays music which just never gets aired on regular radio.  For me it brings London right into my office/living room/bedroom, wherever I happen to be. 

Most of the DJ’s, I either went to school with or lived in my neighborhood. It’s good to see they’ve taken their love of music to the next level.  If you want to hear something different instead of the same five songs you hear every day tune in to TSOL.  You’ll realize the programming for British radio is very different then it is in the states.  You can also listen to them on any Apple or Android product.

Check them out, I think you’ll love them too.  Say hello to everyone in the shoutbox. 

Also check them out on Facebook.

Happy listening:

He’s Back!!!!….

CORRECTION – D’Angelo actually plays London next week.  After a 10 year absence, which included quite a few controversies, very unflattering photos and a whole bunch of other stuff, our guy D’Angelo made a serious comeback in Stockholm Sweden last night and gave them a truly outstanding show.  I know he’s playing in London tomorrow, where I know he’ll be accepted like a long-lost brother.  It’s been 10 long years, with only two albums to keep us company.  This is the man who paved the way for Raheem DeVaugh (love him!), because D’Angelo basically dropped off the face of the earth and the gap had to filled, which Mr. DeVaugh the R&B Rockstar filled very nicely indeed.  The interesting thing now, is will D’Angelo be able to take the crown back which he held very briefly or will they share the spotlight together?  So much time has passed and Raheem has come and taken the world by storm and become very successful in his own right.  In my opinion, there’s room for everyone. Two very talented artists’ taking center stage, only time will tell.  Read the full article posted in today’s Guardian UK. I can’t wait for D’Angelo’s show to arrive Stateside. I for one will be there!

The man who stepped into the spotlight.
