Soul Town's Uptown Classic Soul CountdownSaturdays 12 pm ET Rebroadcast 12 am ET Host Wanda Ramos shines the spotlight on a different Motown artist each week, and turns back the clock to count down 15 of the best soul songs from a specific year between 1960 to 1979.
Ken "Spider" Webb | email Weekdays 6 am - 12 pm ETBack in the day, Ken "Spider" Webb caught most of his live music at the legendary Apollo Theater. He cites the Motown Review tours of 1964 and 1965 as the most memorable performances, and he's glad to be playing records by all of the great acts who graced that hallowed stage on Soul Town!
Jeff Foxx | email Weekdays 6 pm - 12 am ETJeff Foxx names "Love Jones" by The Brighter Side of Darkness as his favorite song of all time. His favorite group? Tower Of Power. OK, we get it: he's an aficionado... though Jeff admits he's not super-useful on the dance floor: "I can't dance, can't sing, but I can play a hell of a bass guitar!"
Wanda Ramos | email Saturdays 12 pm - 6 pm ETWanda's first concert was Sly and The Family Stone. "I was introduced to the band afterwards. Couldn't get much better than that!" She's a passionate soul music fan. "Back then, songs were stories and the music was raw and movin'! A party isn't a party without Philly Soul, Stax and classic Motown!"
Tanya Simpson | email Sundays 12 pm - 6 pm ETAs a teenager, Tanya Simpson's portable radio was a constant companion. "I would have big earphones on, singing ALL the lyrics like I wrote them myself." Known for her powerful, provocative voice, Tanya recalls almost losing it at her first Jackson 5 concert, "screaming louder than my older sister!"
Fred Buggs Mondays - Fridays 12 pm - 6 pm ETFred Buggs still remembers the first time he heard Psychedelic Shack by the Temptations, and their new lead singer Dennis Edwards. He’s a Motown junkie who also is a big fan of other fine groups like the Tops and Kool & the Gang, but always pays r-e-s-p-e-c-t to the ladies of soul like Aretha Franklin, Gladys and Roberta Flack. Check out "Buggsy" and his skills weekday afternoons.
