Soul music, funk, R&B and Blues…the real thing and conversations with the people who created it.

You’re about to be in on the birth of “On the One: Vintage Soul Interviews” right here on Bleav.

What does On the One mean? I heard it from James Brown a long time ago when I asked him, “Mr Brown? What IS it that you DO that makes people go nuts?”

He just leaned back and smiled and said, “I kick off on the one and let the boogie do the rest.”

I’ll ask each guest what they think it means, too.

We’re kicking off with the reigning queen of soul Bettye LaVette, followed by singer Lee Fields, then Lee Oskar, the harmonica player from War, and then Tony Coleman, BB King’s drummer for thirty-five years.

How does that sound for the first four episodes? And we’re only getting started.

This is fun. I’ve interviewed thousands of musicians and I’m not stopping.

Come on along! And tell your friends. You can find it wherever you get your podcasts.
