Soul sunday

This series is dedicated to spreading the gospel of soul music across the blogosphere. Old school to new school, Marvin to Maxwell, Motown to Memphis, Amy to Aretha and back. I’ve got a growing list of guest-bloggers lined up. Holla back if you want to wax poetic about a track you find particularly soulful. The genre or style is secondary; house, dub, hip hop, whatever. Just as long as it’s soulful.

Just happened upon your blog after reading your post: “Up for grabs: the future of newspapers.” Good stuff, but your “Soul Sunday” page caught my eye before I completed my comment on your post. Looking forward to what next Sunday may bring. Peace.

Thanks for the heads up, Samal. Soul Sunday is a hobby – I’ve always wanted to write about music I like – but it’s also an open platform. So feel free to suggest music.
