THE NORTHERN SOUL SATURDAY SPECIAL
This Saturday 27th local DJ GLENN SOLO brings you a night of NORTHERN SOUL on The Saturday Special.Northern soul is a music and dance movement that emerged from the British mod scene, initially in northern England in the late 1960s. Northern soul mainly consists of a particular style of black American Soul music based on the heavy beat and fast tempo of the mid-1960s Tamla Motown sound. The Northern soul movement, however, generally eschews Motown or Motown-influenced music that has met with significant mainstream success. The recordings most prized by genre enthusiasts are usually by lesser-known artists, and were initially released only in limited numbers, often by small regional labels in the United States.
Tune in Saturday night to hear Glenn Solo play some casino classic, rareities and obscurities, you may even hear a few tracks that are reassuringly familiar – one thing’s for certain, this music will have you dancing around your living room.
The Saturday Special Northern Soul Night 9-11 PM on Waiheke Radio.
