Suite Soul with Bob Jeffries Tuesdays 9-11pm
Bob Jeffries has been collecting and djing now for for over 30 years.
He is now the only dj to have played at every Southport/Minehead Weekender playing the Powerhouse, Conn Corner, Beat Bar (previously the jazz room) over the years. He has also been played at every Luxury Soul Weekender both at Birmingham and Blackpool! Bob and his wife Lorna run the successful Suite Soul night in Kilmarnock Scotland every 2 months where the music policy is quite open with soul, soulful house and dance-floor jazz on the menu. They have secured some top dj's for the night including John Morales, Terry Jones and Ricky Reid to name a few.
Bob's new show on Starpoint will reflect the music policy of his nights in Kilmarnock which follows the ethos of play everything in the one room.
Chris ''The Shirt'' Elliott was brought up in SE London on a diet of Reggae,Soul and Jim Reeves(blame his Jamaican dad for that one).
Soulful or Funky House,RnB,Reggae,Ska,Rare Grooves and of course the best of Soul music are just some of the music genres which he enjoys listening to and will be in his shows on Starpoint in some shape or form.He started playing on internet radio a few years back on the original Sunrisefm and since then his stations have included the now defunct Vinylmorpher Radio and lately Platinum Grooves Radio of which he was part owner.His been known to hit the floors on various dance floors at Soul nights and of course the infamous Caister Soul Weekenders but as his got older its more of a crawl rather than a spring.Look out for ''Shirtys'' shows here on Starpoint and hope you enjoy his shows.
Many of you will have noticed certain streams misbehaving on the Starpoint app. The good news is we have submitted a new upgrade to Apple and this should appear in the App store soon. The even better news is this version still remains free to all our listeners. We shall advise when the new app and upgrade is available.

When last we heard from Toussaint the Liberator ? the stage name for Paul Barrett ? he had just released the highly acclaimed reggae album Black Gold. I thought Black Gold was one of 2010?s best projects. That wasn?t bad for an Indiana native who grew up singing in the church before relocating to Boston. Once in Boston, Toussaint sang funk, blues, R&B and soul in a number of bands. He even joined the band Soulive for a yearlong stint in 2006.read moremore ...

You see that Lisa Marshall operates out of Austin, and then you hear her muscular brand of soul and blues with a little country mixed in and Janis Joplin immediately comes to mind. Marshall does count Joplin as a musical influence along with soul music royalty such as Aretha Franklin, Etta James and Gladys Knight ? singers she heard while listening to her parents? vinyl. Marshall?s parents raised her in Virginia Beach. From there Marshall moved to Seattle before eventually settling in Austin. She likely heard plenty of country, soul, blues and rock along the way.read moremore ...
