Smooth Radio to celebrate Northern Soul

Smooth Radio and Smooth Radio 70s are simulcasting a special two hour Soul Connection Show this afternoon to celebrate 40 years of Northern Soul.
The two national stations will mark the the anniversary of the first Wigan Casino Northern Soul All-Nighter, which took place in the early hours of Sunday 23rd September 1973. Today from 2pm, a special programme devoted to the music, the DJs and the artists behind the number one Northern Soul all-nighter of all time airs, on what would have been the 40th anniversary of the venue. Listeners can continue over to Smooth 70’s at 4pm for an extra and exclusive two hours of Northern Soul.

In addition, Smooth 70’s is also playing Northern Soul classics and Wigan Casino floor-fillers throughout the weekend.

Steve Collins, Programme Director for Smooth Radio commented: “The Northern Soul era was so influential, it’s impact can still be seen and heard in music around us today. We’re delighted to be broadcasting ‘Soul Connection’ this Sunday simultaneously on Smooth Radio and Smooth 70’s.

“Listeners will be able to relive the Northern Soul glory days with this show, hosted by Richard Searling and Kev Roberts, along with many special guests including Lisa Stansfield and Kiki Dee.”
