Thank you to all the people who called the studio who were listening for the first time it was great you could join us, I do know my my regular slot is late for a Sunday, but as I said before no need to miss out just go to my Blog site. If you ever get problems getting on the site just Google 'Bill Randle, The Science of Soul' and it will take you there, then save me in your Favorites.
This week's featured artist is a young lady from Jackson Mississippi,. Adrena, some of you may be aware of her 2010 release "Thoughts Of A Woman" I will be playing a couple of tracks from that album plus her latest single from her upcoming set "Better Day's." The album is just being completed and will be available in the first quarter of this year. There will be more tracks played from this album as I receive them.
All the signs are that 2013 is gonna be a busy year for Adrena the album sounds great, I will keep you updated .You can check-out our Adrena's biography at the foot of this page. Also in today's show have new music from Will Downing from his new album "Silver," that's due out very soon too. Already out there is Teena Marie's posthumous set "Beautiful," this is a great album highly recommended from this legendary lady of soul. On the subject of legends I will be playing the new single from Chris Jasper's album, the former Isley Brother, Jasper as been delivering album after album of great music. His new set "Inspired: By Love, By Life And The Spirit" is no exception and Chris will be our featured artist next week.
Great to see the US TV series Unsung back on air, the latest show featured Isaac Hayes, you need to check this Series out as they do great work on spotlighting our soul legends. Also worth looking at is Kevin Goins excellent Blog site. New York based Kevin brings lots of interesting news and feature's and for 60's soul fans check Mickey Nold's excellent Detroit Labels blog, it's a wealth of information beautifully presented as always by Mickey, if your not familiar with Mickey he is the man who put the Science of Soul site together and without his hard work and dedication this place just would not exist, he also does a number of Blog's, Mickey is a wealth of knowledge, when you get on his site you can get lost for days (Lol).

Sad to wake up today (Sunday) to hear the news that we have lost a true soul legend Mr Leroy "Sugerfoot" Bonner. Sugerfoot was a founding member of The Ohio Players and his style and vocals were a major part of the bands success. Not to overstate his influence on generations of funketeers would be impossible, I will be doing a proper tribute him on next weeks show - R.I.P. Leroy "Sugerfoot" Bonner ......O.H.I.O. That's it for now so sit back enjoy the music.
