Ya'll know our Lou Berkman is on the radio, right?

His Midday Mixtape welcomes very special guest Aaron Cohen, author of the recently published “Move on Up, Chicago Soul Music and Black Cultural Power” on Tuesday, October 8, 2019 from 12-2 PM CT on 89.3 WNUR, wnur.org and TuneIn. Cohen’s book is a fascinating, informative, and compelling look at the Chicago soul music scene of late 50s through 70s based on over 100 first person interviews and an exhaustive study of primary sources. But it’s all about the music and Aaron will be spinning many of the songs discussed, as well as some that are just as great, but unmentioned. The artists include The Impressions, Baby Huey, Syl Johnson, The Chi-Lites, Terry Callier, Barbara Acklin, The Notations, Rotary Connection, and of course Curtis Mayfield along with many others. We will try and stuff as much music and conversation as possible into two hours. There’s nothing better than playing soul music on the radio! Do tune in for another adventure in long form radio.

9/27 is a big day for new releases, and we have them for you today starting at 11AM. There's a brand new album from The New Pornographers and another brilliant lost-but-now-found John Coltrane full-length release from a session recorded in 1964. Also, the 50th anniversary of the Beatles' 'Abbey Road' brings a new 2019 mix that is a must-have for your collection! Stop by and pick up your copies of all three and, while you're here, check out our always-killer-and-never-filler new arrivals bins!

A few Christmases ago, we were knocked out by Joel Paterson’s genius guitar when he took on a set of Christmas songs blending jazz and country swing. We just got in the follow-up: Joel’s take on the Beatles. If you are a fan of inventive and soulful instrumental guitar arrangements in the vein of Les Paul and Chet Atkins, this will be your new favorite album! We’ve got it on both CD and vinyl, so come by and grab your copy. We expect them to go fast!
