Dennis Edwards (RIP)

Dennis with my Mom
Welcome to this edition of The Science of Soul. The focus of this weeks show is a tribute to the late and most certainly great Mr Dennis Edwards. I had the privilege of knowing him for many years and in all those years he remained untouched by fame and fortune. Always he was just Dennis and the world is a much sadder place without him. I recorded an interview with over twenty years ago, you will find it top right column, it gives you a real insight in to his character he was quite simply a man with a heart of gold. The second hour of the show is dedicated solely to him and the tracks I have selected are all favourites of mine from his long and distinguished career. RIP Dennis you will never be forgotten.

I have some new music this week from Willie Clayton, Jay Nemor who always kinda reminds me of Gil Scott-Heron, and that's no bad thing, also I have the new single from southern soul lady Mizz Connie "Why You Wanna Act Like That." I will be doing some album tracking from Willie Bradley, Cale Brock and Will Downing and there are a few old school classics to round it out. Sit back enjoy the music and thank you for stopping by.
