Roots and Rhythms
Wednesday February 15th, 2017 with Renny
Black History Month and the day after Valentine's Day. On tonight's show: BROKEN HEARTED SOUL FOR BROKEN HEARTED SOULS.

An alternative to the warm & fuzzy conspiracy known as Valentine's Day. The day after Valentine's Day massacre: broken hearted soul for broken hearted souls. Soul that's about heartache, cheating and lost love. Tonight's show is dedicated to the dejected, the dumped, the divorced and the lonely.

I haven't played soul on R&R since the heat wave last summer. I hope you're diggin' the tunes.

Yeah, yeah...I know Amy Winehouse isn't African-American but it is soul and the song does fit in with the theme of the show.

Love the title of the show - so many great songs but some I've always loved: You're No Good, I'd Rather be Blind....and of course, Tainted Love! (the original but I have to admit Soft Cell's version got me up and grooving every time many decades ago!)....We just have to get through these "Hallmark Holidays" and celebrate the special little things that are part of daily life!
