Bill's first show 11/11/12

The anniversary of Bill's first show on 'The Bridge' later called 'Black Country Radio' was 19 years ago this week on 11th November 2012. The Blog page with track listing can be found here:-  https://science-of-soul.blogspot.com/2012/11/welcome-to-soul.html


Mike Terry Special

Because this interview wasn't in Bill's sweet soul vain it didn't get re-uploaded to his Science Of Soul pages until today. It was originally broadcast on Mickey's Basement Soul Sunday show as a Special. As with all of Bill interviews they got an extra boost when used as auto pilot tapes on PCRL during the DJ free hours of the day when DTI was more likely to raid the station so nobody would do live shows. Re-uploaded here for Limu in France who showed interest in the late Terry's work. Thanks Bill for your time collecting Terry's memories and reminding him what wonderful work he'd done.

Bill's Celebration Of Life


A great time was had at this 'sold-out' event
Money raised was presented to Acorns by Garry Randle


Enchantment Tribute

One of Bill's favourite bands, recorded by Bill and EJ Johnson around 1998. Sadly Walter L. Jones has just passed away (7th June, 2021,) so I thought I would re-upload the recording made for PCRL radio all those years ago. Thanks to Dawn Randle for the photo of EJ. & Bill. Also remembering other band member, Carl Cotton who left us 14th September 2003, Detroit, Michigan, U.S.A. Thanks also to Ryo my good Japanese Face Book friend who asked to hear the recording. The band was also featured here:- SOS Page
