"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"
"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
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
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

"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

"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!!!!"

for a good while now, when i'm able to tune in that
is, so the podcast is really fantastic, i'm signed
