Allan Tolley’s SOUL DIRECTION,
Playing across the board soul, funk and jazz funk on vinyl.
I have been collecting records of mixed genre on and off since the early 70’s, mainly influenced by my love of dancing to soul, funk and jazz funk, in recent years with more free time and available funds my collecting has resumed, I still enjoy trawling through boxes of records at the back of record shops and sales rather than the ease and comfort of the internet.
It wasn’t until late 2010 that I was persuaded that I should be playing my underground rare collection for others enjoyment, encouraged by my girlfriend and her brother Tony Gordon, one of my first public gig’s was as a guest on his show Soul Time on afro-disiac, I really enjoyed the experience and looked forward to every chance to play my tunes for everybody’s enjoyment not just my own.
I really enjoyed presenting Soul direction for 2 years on www.afro-disiac.co.uk so after a break the show is now back every Saturday 4pm-6pm
