Weekly Playlist: Soul Selects

In the seventeen years I spent riding in the car with my dad, he never changed the radio station once. Philadelphia’s own Oldies 98.1 was on permanent lock. And I had no qualms with this at all. As a kid, there is nothing more fun to sing along to than the oldies. Still to this day, there isn’t a Diana Ross and The Supremes hit that I don’t know all of the words to. When I went off to college, I started to dig deeper into Motown and Soul tracks, finding delight in unearthing the obscure gems that never topped the charts  I am still listening and learning, finding new stuff all the time. Included are a few classics as well as some more rare songs. I hope you enjoy listening.
