The Northern Soul Project – Streaming 24/7 Northern Soul Radio (Post #4)

A quick post to share my latest Northern Soul find: a radio station that streams classic Northern Soul music online, ad free, 24/7.

A partnership between San Francisco radio station KALW (91.7FM) and National Public Radio, “The Mix: Northern Soul Radio,” can be found HERE.  I opened up the site and am listening right now as I’m working on other things at the computer.

In case you’re new to reading my blog, I started a somewhat casual, but continuing, exploration of Northern Soul a couple of months ago.  Basically it’s 1950s/’60s Motown soul records, which became the soundtrack of an underground dance-oriented club movement in Northern England during the 1970s, and is still going strong today.

You can find my previous posts here if you’d like to learn more about Northern Soul and catch up on the “Northern Soul” series:

In a little twist of karma, the WMSE, the radio station long associated with Milwaukee School of Engineering (where I teach), is also 91.7FM.  Be sure to check out my friend Sonia’s Friday afternoon “Blues Drive” show (3-6 p.m. Central every Friday) if you like classic blues music.
