The challenge upon launching Fullasoul Radio was to make a special format, one that had previously been attempted and failed by many stations, actually work. While many stations have tried to bridge the gaps between indie and label, new and not-so-new, this subgenre and that subgenre, few have managed to make it work in a way that would be sustainable for any period of time.

As we enter our eighth month on the air, we're excited to celebrate the love and loyalty YOU GUYS have shown us so far by launching five special programming blocks that are set to air every weekday. While it's your willingness to embrace the unique blend of artists and music we've presented you with that has made Fullasoul Radio a success, we thought it'd be fun to just take an hour out of each day and celebrate something a little more...specific :)

We'll kick things off on Tuesday (May 29th) with the debut of "Check 1", a show devoted to all of your favorite jams from the New Jack Swing era...along with a few rarities you may have missed! While the productions of Teddy Riley are obviously featured, we go beyond that to reflect on an era where swing and hip hop soul thoroughly dominated R&B airwaves the world over.

On Wednesdays (starting May 30th), we'll shine a musical spotlight on the works of one of the greatest production teams in the
history of popular music, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. The show is called "Flyte Tyme", and NO Flyte Tyme productions are off limits, including works from Jellybean Johnson, Monte Moir, Lance Alexander & Prof. T, "Big Jim" Wright and more!

Thursday (May 31st) brings us to the debut of "The Ohio Power Hour"! Join us as we celebrate some of Ohio's finest musicians and the countless contributions they've made to funk, soul and R&B music!

On Friday evenings, we hope you'll join us as we travel back in time to the fictional disco hotspot, "Club Odyssey"! Rather than
focus solely on the same few well-known classics, we strive to simulate the experience and playlist of a night in one of the
world's hottest discotheques during the later stages of the genre's short lifespan. The debut episode airs June 1st.

We hope you'll tune in on Monday, June 4th, as we debut a very special program called "Ear 2 The Ground"! Join us as we break some new sounds from soul and R&B artists the world over. As with our normal format, we pay no regard to how well-known or established the artist is here. If it's hot and it's new, you're gonna hear it here and hear it here first!

To accomodate our international audience, episodes of each show will air at both 8am AND 8pm (EST) on their respective days. Remember that our current programming lineup (and airtimes) can always be seen by visiting our Calendar page.

As always, we hope you'll help us spread the word about Fullasoul Radio and our upcoming programming. This station is intended to present YOU with an alternative to the corporate-owned FM stations that have completely lost touch with you, your interests AND (of course) YOUR music! Helping us reach a wider audience enables us to grow and provide you with the music and content that YOU want to hear!

We love and appreciate you guys far more than you probably realize! Together we WILL see both R&B music and R&B radio THRIVE again the way it once did!
