FRIDAY 4 – 6AM
I’m Richard Searling , born June 1952 been a soul fan for over 50 years…I present weekly soul programmes Solar Radio, Sundays 10am – midday (repeated Friday 4am – 6am)
In 2019, I was honoured to be awarded the BEM for services to soul music in the queen’s honours list
4am – 5am: A Cellar Full Of Soul – I will be retracing the glory years of Northern Soul, recounting experiences from some of the legendary venues such as the Wigan Casino, The Manchester Ritz , the 100 Club and the Twisted Wheel, as well as all that’s making the scene so vibrant to this day. A fast moving, uplifting blend of the very best 60s rare soul that makes Northern Soul a worldwide phenomenon, and has inspired a feature film to be released later this year.
