A Deeper Podcast Vol. 1 - A Soul Summer

So without further delay, it is my pleasure to announce the creation of my podcast series, A Deeper Podcast. Volume 1 is a two part series called "A Soul Summer," featuring some great soul tracks that for me, have always created the perfect summertime vibe. I know that "summertime mixes" are so last month, but hey, I just learned how to make a podcast.

In this two part episode you will find music from:

The Meters
Aretha Franklin
Tony Joe White
Otis Redding
Candi Staton
King Curtis
...and many more

I have to acknowledge that the sound quality on my spoken intros is not top notch - I bought a bum microphone and ended up using the mic embedded in the computer. It'll be better next time. But hey, you're not downloading these to hear me talk, are you?

Comments, suggestions for future podcasts, and love letters are all welcome. Enjoy it...and revel in the summer!
