Paul Richmond
The Featured Album this week comes from my good friend Paul Richmond, "Monkey See Monkey Do" is a tribute to one of Paul's hero's Johnny Guitar Watson and it's been on Paul's to do list for quite a few years . It's available on download from CD Baby . Paul is an all round music talent one Chicago's busiest musicians and producer and over the years Paul as written some incredible songs a few of which I have also included in the show. We also have great new music from Bigg Robb, Andre Lee, Black Diamond, Jermaine Robbins and we revisit the current projects from Stan Mosley, Bobby Helmz and Miracle Thomas. The new release from Ty Hunter Jr., is being very well received and it couldn't happen to a nicer guy "I Wanna Be With You" is now available for download from all the usual places and I highly recommend you pick it up very soon. There are plenty Old Skool gems to take you back in time so relax and enjoy...

Miracle Thomas

Welcome, due to an impending Chicago trip, this will be the last 'new' show until Sunday, May 5th, when normal service will be resumed. Featured Artist in this weeks show is the new EP from Miracle Thomas "Expect A Miracle II". It's just what you would expect from this very talented young lady, smooth and soulful, and sure to raise her profile even more. Other new stuff comes from Detroit jazz man Gregg Holsey, and the latest release from UK soulman Kejam featuring Juanita Wynn, plus I dip into the current highly successful Victor Haynes set "Take It To The Top" another highly respected UK artist. The Undisputed Truth album "Truth Gon' Set You Free" has been very well received and it's not hard to see why so I thought I'd just remind how great it is.

I step back to 2017 for Elijah Blake's powerful "Hanging Tree" a song that really makes you sit up and take notice. For the Old Skool folks I have included two Archie Bell & The Drells classics both of which we're written by living Legend Prince Philip Mitchell a man with a back catalog has both a performer and writer that is truly incredible (I feel a Science of Soul Special coming on) you will be be amazed at his history. OK It's music time and thank you for bearing with me over the next couple of weeks I truly appreciate you.
