From this weekend, it’s about to get more funky on Unity 101 as Don John & Jim Baker’s ‘Soul Train’ rolls onto 101.1FM. This soul and old school RnB programme currently broadcasts on Tuesdays on Voice FM, Unity 101’s sister station, and will now take its place in a prime time slot on Unity 101.
Airing fortnightly Saturdays from 6pm-8pm, Soul Train will join Unity 101’s Vibrant Vibes radio show, presented by Veronica Gordon and Keesha Edwards, in bringing music of Black origin to our Saturday evenings.
Previously in the slot was the soul and urban show, Notes Beats & Bars, whose presenters Hadley & So Soulful, after a successful few years, had to give up the show due to other commitments. Ram Kalyan, Station Manager, said “We’re very sad to lose Notes Beats & Bars, Hadley & So Soulful did a fantastic show. However, as is the nature of community radio, our volunteers often have busy lives outside of the studio and sometimes, something has to give, and at times, that is their volunteering with us. & they didn’t make the decision lightly. That said, we’re delighted to welcome Don & Jim on board, as we get on board the Soul Train.”
Tune in to Unity 101’s first Soul Train show on Saturday 31st January from 6pm – 8pm.
