Rhythm and Soul Radio – http://www.rhythmandsoulradio.com

The show goes out on Marko Nobles Urban Eclectic Internet Radio Station Rhythm and Soul Radio on the 3rd and 4th Sunday of each month at 4pm Eastern US time (9pm UK time).

‘Soul Freedom’ is presented by me, Mike Ashley. Occassionally we have guest DJ mixes by other European DJ’s and occassionally we have artists selecting influential tracks. DJ’s and artists are invited to contact me if they wish to be considered for these features.

The music policy is broad but there is particular emphasis on new and independent music.

The show is podcasted after original broadcast on http://lifeandsoul.podomatic.com/

Radio Cardiff – http://www.radiocardiff.org

Radio Cardiff is a community radio station based in Cardiff, Capital City of Wales. It can be heard locally on 98.7FM and elsewhere via the internet.

‘Soul Freedom’ has broadly the same music policy but is co-presented by myself and KGB. The show is every Sunday 3pm til 5pm UK time.

The show is ‘live’ and is thus more spontaneous. We do not podcast it, we do not do playlists, we just freestyle it. There is a webcam and chatroom, and our audience including some artists have joined the show live. Clearly we are promoting the music, but we also have to present and promote Cardiff and it’s community and cultures.

Soul Freedom is the badge we put around shows produced by Life and Soul Promotions. This allows us to express and utilise Soul Music from any era and any related genre of black music. Thus whilst Life and Soul Promotions raison d’etre is to promote predominantly new indie soul product Soul Freedom will have a broader base, but still feature new music strongly.
