The Internet's #1 choice for classic soul and R&B. Specializing in rare, hard-to-find, seldom heard classic soul and R&B from the 1960's through today. Don't worry, we play the hits too. You'll even hear some classic reggae and smooth jazz in the mix too.

About general soul

Hello, I'm General Soul. I am a father, husband and musician where music is really big in my life. My career is in Technology. I also play the electric guitar. I've been for over 30 years and I've been in many bands. I currently play guitar in the band of my church. Music has always (and still is) fascinating and enjoyable to me. My parents, (of course) where major players in exposing me to the various genres that were available. My mother had a large collection of 45 RPMs, consisting mostly Soul and R&B music. My Father, a twenty-year Naval Officer, brought home many albums from the countries that he had visited from Japan, Cuba, Mexico, Africa, West Indies and areas. I've always enjoyed listening to the music my parents played. I believe the enjoyment is what planted a seed in me of want to be a radio DJ. Event hough, I'm not much of a conversationalist or have the personality of a good radio DJ, I've always wanted to share my music with others. However, thanks to Live365, it had allowed me, through the miracle of the Internet, enabled me to run and program my very own online radio station! During the mid to late 1990s, the early years of MP3s, I was able to digitally convert thousands of vinyl albums, singles and compact discs in to digital audio for my personal MP3 player. Fast forward to last year, I discovered Live365, I knew that this would be an opportunity to make my dream of broadcasting music come true! After many years of converting my music, I now have a way to share my love - music. Hopefully, you'll tune into my station and enjoy the tunes as much as I do! Trust me, I'm still finding rare music that aren't available on compact discs yet in various small record stores, yard sales and various charity outlets. Obviously, you'll notice the soothing, familiar sounds related to vinyl records, the pops and clicks - ain't nothing like it!! At your convenience, I hope you'll get a chance to listen to my station. If you like it, please don't forget to send me a message from my station's page.

Hello and thank you from General Soul...

I would like to personally thank you so very much for visiting Classic Soul Unlimited. Classic Soul Unlimited, is a station with eclectic mix of Blues, Reggae, R&B, Soul, Funk, and Gospel genres. Some may be top twenty chart hits, album cuts or tracks that didn't get any air play at all. I've created this station just for the shear joy of sharing my love of music.

As part of my regular ritual of sharing the love of music, most of the music your hear were painstakingly converted from analog LPs and 45s to digital at the highest quality possible. That way, you will hear the best audio quality with very little sonic deterioration. Please note, however, that because of the nature of vinyl discs, not all pops and click could be removed during the conversion process. But to me, that's the best part of listening to vinyl! The program is on average, approximately one in-a-half to two hours in duration, no DJ chatter or commercials (except those who are not VIP subscribers - you'll have to endure periodic commercials unless you become a VIP.

Finally, if you indeed enjoy the music and the variety, please let me know by voting for station. I would really appreciate the feed back!

Again, thank you for visiting Classic Soul Unlimited! I hope you find the music very entertaining and it regularly takes you back to memory lane.
