The Golden Years Mix



I love music. I just absolutely, positively, 100% love music! I hopped on the 1's and 2's and played one record, then another record, one more record, and found myself like Sister Sledge: "Lost in Music!" On this particular podcast of The Soul Brother Show - The Home of Heavy Soul and Raw Funk, I took it back to the era of Insatiable, disco balls, platform shoes and bell bottoms, and the essence of having a damn good time! I got rare tracks from Amanda Lear and Marilyn Chambers (yes... THAT Marilyn Chambers!) to classic cuts from David Bowie and Sylvester. As always, sit back, relax, and enjoy!




Andrea True Connection - "More, More, More"


Marilyn Chambers - "Benihana"


Salsoul Orchestra - "You're Just the Right Size"


Donna Summer - "Love to Love You Baby" (Full Version)
