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 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.

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

So Good playlist: October 9

Some really solid stuff in this week’s show. New tracks from locals Joanna Borromeo and Dragon Fli Empire were both great, and the SonReal and Rich Kidd track sounds like a potential crossover hit to me. I’ll try to talk about all of those in more detail on here in the next few days. But … Continue reading

So Good Playlist for September 25

I went back to the old-school soul today, for the most part. The Nick Waterhouse record is still blowing my mind, and probably will be for some time. And the new Heavy and Souljazz discs seem to be living up to their last releases which says a lot. But the one that’s creeping up on … Continue reading

So Good Playlist for September 11, 2012

I think that went pretty well. Went through a fairly good variety on the first installment of the So Good Soul Revue, and I’m thinking the hour of hip hop/hour of soul balance might be a decent way to go, but I’ll play with that in the next while. If you were curious what you … Continue reading
