A series of monthly radio shows hosted by Greg Belson on, dedicated to gospel soul, funk and spirituals from the 1960’s thru to the 1980’s.

“Many of you might be familiar with the floor shakin’ Sacred Four ‘Somebody watching you’ which spearheads the labels popularity in club land at the moment. But now it’s time to get familiar with the likes of the Dynamic Deciples, the Mighty Golden Bells, Truth & Devotion & Rev. Robert Welch.
