Solar Sunrise – SOUNDS ON CIRCLES
Saturday 6 – 8am
Showcasing my favourite R&B/Soul sounds of the moment in hour one and a themed section in hour two taking a look back in time… we always end with a Yacht Soul gem!
YACHT SOUL 1st SATURDAY OF THE MONTH 8 – 10PM
So what is Yacht Soul? Well it’s where soul music and AOR collided in the late 70s and 80s to create a perfect blend which has stood the test of time – it’s smooth, well-crafted, super-engineered soul music. So why don’t you grab a life jacket and come aboard!
SONGBOOK 3rd SUNDAY OF THE MONTH 4 – 6PM
Each month we will focus on a well known songwriter / producer and play a selection of tracks that represent their soul music repertoire!
Having been surrounded by soulful sounds from birth, it was only natural that I would go on to love the sounds of Soul Music. My late father, Cliff Clifford, used to run Otis Redding’s fan club in the UK and he was one of the privileged few to actually meet Berry Gordy and the Motown Revue in 1965. In 2004 I was lucky enough to meet Richard Searling and Ralph Tee and they kindly welcomed me onto the scene, gave me a chance to DJ at the Luxury Soul Weekender and even allowed me to contribute to some outstanding compilations on Expansion Records. My first show on Solar Radio was back in 2008 and since then I have guested regularly for Raj Selli – but in 2020 I decided it was time to make it a more regular spot.
I currently have 3 shows on the station – “Sounds on Circles” a weekly show looking at the best of new R&B/Soul music, “Yacht Soul” on the 1st Saturday of every month and “Songbook” on the 3rd Sunday of the month.
