In Pride Week 2018 (July 28 to August 5) SALTO Stads FM becomes "Pride FM" for a week. This means that the full schedule is changed and all programs are 100% dedicated to the Pride Week.
Fingerpoppin Soul of course fully supports this and will in the show of August 2 be fully dedicated to the Pride theme. This means the show will only contain records made by gay artists or with a gay theme.
There will be no compromise of course in the quality of the records played, Soul from all eras will be featured, by artists like Arthur Conley, Bessie Smith, Labi Siffre, Carl Bean, Rahsaan Patterson, Luther Vandross, Ma Rainey, Little Richard, Dusty Springfield, Jackie Shane (transgender), Laura Nyro, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, the Dynamic Superiors, Barbara Lewis, Queen Latifah, Keith Barrow, James Cleveland, Ronnie Dyson, and many others!
Listen on August 2 to this special episode of Fingerpoppin Soul on Pride FM and experience that there is more under the sun than Ibiza house and “It’s raining men”!
Broadcast is on Thursday August 2 2018 from 22-24 CET on Pride FM (106.8 FM and 103.3 Cable) and will be available on MIxcloud on Friday the 3rd of August.
Next week the venerable North Sea Jazz Festival is held again at the AHOY in Rotterdam. From Friday the 13th of July to Sunday the 15th hundreds of artists will perform in a dozen halls in Hollands main seaport city.
As always we will be there, although to be honest the main attractions at the festival are o in the early hours of the first day.
The O'Jays are finally performing and they start their set at 5:15 PM... As soon as they finish we will hurry to another hall to see the magnificent Durand Jones & the Indications again. Late on the Friday neo soul legend Maxwell will do his thing. The other two days at NSJ don't really match this first day but we will see...
