My Top CD's For 2008

Link to DJ Bio Page: 

Here are my top Soul and R&B music related CD’s for 2008.  They have been broken down by the following categories.  Top individual or group, top various artists and honorable mention.  My choices are in no par


I first started in public radio back in late 1987 at KBCS 91.3 in Bellevue WA.  During my years there, which lasted until early 1993, I did afternoon news reports and hosted a few different late night music shows (Midnight to 3 AM).  The first one was called "Nuggets" which featured garage and other styles of rock music from the 1960's.  A few years later, I developed an interest in 60's Soul music and changed the format and name of my show this time to "The Soul Shack".  Later, I combined both rock and soul music on my show thus I called it "The Rock & Soul Shack". 

I've been a volunteer at KSER since August of 1993 where I first started as a board operator for a show called "Con Salsa."  I did that until the end of February of the following year and from March-June 1994, I hosted a 60's and 70's soul and r&b music show called "Rising Soul" which aired Saturday's from 6-8 AM.   In July of '94, I moved to Friday nights from 10 PM to midnight, and this time I changed the name of the show to "Dusties" and still kept the 60's and 70's soul and r&b format.   From late September 1994 to early July 2007, Dusties aired from 8-10 PM on Friday and on July 7th, I moved to my current time of Saturday's from 5-7 PM.    

In 2006, I started to incorporate the sounds of r&b music from the 1940's and 1950's so now the Dusties show contains the best in soul and r&b music from the 60's and 70's along with a touch of 40's and 50's R&B for good measure.
