Welcome To The Soul-Patrol Newsletter
We have have added quite a few new streaming internet radio broadcasts on Soul-Patrol.Net Radio (www.soul-patrol.net), so we thought that we would take a moment to give you a taste of some of this great audio...
Please take a listen by clicking on the rectangular graphical banners that you will see as you scroll down. As you scroll down you will note that it's a nice mixture of artists that you have known and loved for many years, plus a number of artists that you may not yet be familair with. We invite you to take a stroll down memory lane, but we also ask that you take some time to check out at least one artist that you haven't ever heard of. These artists represent the future of OUR music and will be carying it forward, long after most of us are gone. In my opinion, they are putting out some great stuff and we need to support them NOW, in order to insure that they will be able to continue to create GREAT BLACK MUSIC FROM THE ANCIENT TO THE FUTURE and extend the legacy of the music/culture.

Listen To: Soul-Patrol.Net Radio July/06 Top 40 Shows
One of the things that people always ask me is what are music fans into these days, since they aren't really listening to commercial radio (ie: "knee-grow radio stations) to discover new music. And of course we reply to that question by writing reviews of the music that is submitted to Soul-Patrol, by artists and other entities. However the reviews that we post here in the Newsletter and on the website are really just the opinions of a single person. A better way to determine what people are looking for is to actually survey what they are listening to. We do that by checking the server logs of Soul-Patrol.Net Radio and creating a Top 40 List each month, based strictly on those numbers. Sure it's a "popularity contest", however it's based on what people who visit our site actually listen to. And when you think about it, those are really the only opinions that count...
