Here's the post from my Soul blog that Yann put together for me. Just wanted to inform everyone here so you'd have a chance to check it out if you're not a visitor of that blog. Thanks again to Yann for doing it!
SoulSistas And SoulBruthas! I've got a little pre-one-year-anniversary mix for you today from my SoulBrutha Yann V. He hails out of France and put together a guest mix for me and, more importantly, for you. Yann's been a supporter of this spot since the beginning and I want to thank him for all the kind messages. We sort of got together over our mutual admiration of Paul Weller. Who's that you might ask? Probably one of the greatest artists in British music history that practically no one knows here in the US. Yann runs a great blog dedicated to the music of Weller and all things MOD. Stop by and pay him a visit. It goes without saying, but I want to give a heartfelt thanks to Yann for taking the time to do this for me. Cheers Brutha!! Check out Yann's UniverSOUL mix!
A Message From Yann:
"UniverSOUL" is the, very pretentious I know, title because it means "Univers Soul" in French (Soul Universe) and Universal Soul in English. It comes from different ages of Soul and different countries to show Soul music is alive everywhere! All The best and I hope you ENJOY!"
