The home of Classic soul, jazz funk & boogie





"Les, Brett, Podcast is Da Bomb. Like others I am storing for prosperity. Even though I have been DJing for some 32 years and seen changes in the dance music scene the late 70's and 80's are my favourite. Takes me back to my teens.
Keep on bangin' 'em out there"

Perry Wilks

"As you may recall I have been listening to your show for many a year. The Podcast is a welcome addition as my recordings by "Total Recorder" software were a bit hit and miss!
Love the shows and particularly love the way you select the less obvious tracks - The Get Down Mellow Sound rather than Turn The Music Up! for example.
You did a show that featured my favourites - Out In The Night (Serge Ponsar) Cocomotion (El Coco) You + Me = Love (Undisputed Truth) and The River Drive (Jupiter Beyond) and I shall always be grateful for that".
Keep up the great work

"If you like 70-80s funk and soul then Les Adams is the best, this is a podcast of his Saturday night show on Solar Radio, I just wish he was on every night, I can't get enough of this funky stuff (-: "

"Great show full of soul and funk memories, always a first class selection of tunes! Website cool, Podcast is awesome. I am keeping all the shows to play over and over, I could never get tired of this! Keep the funk coming!"

Kingsley, South Carolina.
"Waking up on Sunday to download the Podcast is as if all your Birthdays and Christmas days have come at once. Lose yourself for the rest of day reminiscing about the times when music was at its best with classic grooves and Jazz. A brilliant show for all those purists who appreciate great music".

"I have been listening to Solar radio for about 4 years now here in San Antonio, Texas, USA. We used to have a soul station here several years ago but no more. One of the radio stations plays rap and hip hop but I have never like that genre of music. So as it stands, the black american adult male in the San Antonio radio market is basically ignored. I listen to Solar radio all day at work through my laptop, I stream it from my cellphone via bluetooth to my car stereo in the car, and I listen from my cellphone through headphones while I excercise at the gym. I truly appreciate Solar radio!!!!"

Michael Pluck, San Antonio, Texas, USA
"Superb !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Keep it Funky Forever : Jazz Funk & Soul Lives On, in all our hearts and feet, It keeps letting us do the moves !"

"Just an awesome Saturday Evening Show and now a website with added “podcast” can it get any better?"

Rory (a very seasoned listener)
"Just had to add my bit by saying this show plays the REAL dance chooonz of the 80's for those who were there! Not the same old "hits" you get on other shows. This is top dollar soul for those who appreciate great music"

Kanen, Old(ish) soul girl, Bedford.
