So Good Playlist: January 8, 2013

Well, that was pretty fun. First proper show of the new year, with some pretty unimpeachable tracks in there if I do say so myself. A couple of them are off of free albums, so have a skim through the links scattered below. L.V. Johnson – Don’t Cha Mess With My Money My Honey or … Continue reading

So Good playlists: Christmas and New Year’s Editions

Sorry for the lateness and whatnot. I’m sure you were very concerned. But now that it’s no longer particularly timely or relevant, here’s what I played for my Christmas and New Year’s specials. A Very So Good Christmas Truth be told, I’ve never much cared for Christmas music. But that’s mostly because I never put … Continue reading

So Good playlists, December 11 and 18

Yes, I have been derelict, but if you’ve been patiently waiting, here’s what got played on the last couple of shows. Tune in next week for a very soulful Christmas (and keep in mind that I traditionally hate Christmas music, so I’ve gone out of my way to find songs that are actually good. It’ll … Continue reading

So Good Soul Revue playlist for December 4, 2012

The above video was a request that I couldn’t get to, I’m assuming from a Community fan. Hopefully enjoying it unironically, but who can say. The spotlight this week was on soul covers of Beatles tunes, a topic that popped into my head thanks to the great new remaster of the Grey Album, but the actual … Continue reading

So Good Playlist: November 20

My apologies for the lack of links, as I’m kind of in a rush at the moment, but just so you know, there are free, legal downloads available from plenty of these folks, and the ones from Heems, Rainy Milo and Rhye are all especially worth tracking down. If you have a couple minutes and … Continue reading

So Good playlist for Nov. 13

  Exciting day on the show today — the first time I’ve had official guests in the studio, and it was New York synth-pop duo Tanlines (who are playing tonight at Commonwealth as part of their one-year anniversary party that’s going all week, and you should go check it out. Calgary’s Gold is opening. It’ll … Continue reading

So Good playlist for November 6

Kudos to Kat Dornian, the music director at CJSW. I took a bit of a different approach this week and mostly stuck to albums on the official playlist she compiles for the station (which includes 100s of CDs in pretty much every genre), and almost everything I checked out was amazing.

So Good Soul Revue’s Halloween Playlist

  I won’t lie — this episode was a whole lot of fun to put together. There’s a wealth of Halloween songs out there, and no excuse for falling back on the same one or two over and over. By far the best find this week was the audio archive at, which is where … Continue reading

So Good playlist, October 16 edition

A bit more all-over-the-place this week, going from classic blues to garagier modern goodies and a relatively downbeat last 45 minutes to suit the weather. The spotlight this week was on offbeat girl group pop, which is why Dolly Parton makes an appearance and why you might’ve heard the most disturbing single the Crystals ever … Continue reading

So Good Soul Revue: Funding Drive edition (updated)

**NEW PLEDGE LEVEL ADDED If you pledge $500 (!), you’ll get Commonwealth’s Ambassador pass: You and a guest into every event at Commonwealth for a full year, no line, no cover. And considering they just announced a James Murphy DJ set next month, it’s safe to say there’ll be some darn good events. So, the … Continue reading
