The Soul Boat............

At the Soul Boat we play you the very best in Soul, Funk and Disco music taking our lead from those dj's who pioneered the sounds of yester year. We bring these superb sounds back to life and take you on a journey through New Yorks's underground club scene of the late 70's and early 80's.

All the tracks we play are on vinyl and in their original format - we have dug deep in the crates to bring you some of the best club music ever produced.

Many of these slept on classics, are considered as the very beginings of modern dance music, with many recognised samples and breaks to boot.

Occasionally, we have guest dj's and mixes as well as competitions and a play list to die for.

So make sure you keep it locked to the station that rocks! and make a date each sunday with the Soul boat Dj Joe Watkins, between the hours of 1 and 2Pm !!


dj reeeeeeee.... no !

This week, see's the introduction of dj Reno One of bristols true old skool dj's .The first part of the show you get the mix with tracks by west Philips from the early 80's. part two is about Reno's remix which is disco orientated and remixed to a more contemporary feel.

This completes the second in our guest dj mix series ;)
