  1. Hi John,

    You’re right. It was just about impossible to come up with 20 picks when there are so many truly great soul songs. I’m delighted that you enjoyed the first 10 tracks. I hope you’ll enjoy the second set just as much. And yes, Millie Jackson will be included!

    I’m glad that the program helped to ease the pain of your team’s loss.

    All the best,


  2. Hi Greg, glad you are back and many thanks for the share. As you said there are so many to chose…..Maybe try the top 100 next time. All the best
