I came across this podcast and thought I'd have a listen - I'm glad I did! It's bliss for a funk fan like me and I've already heard lots of classic funk and soul hits from the 70's and 80's, which is a music era I love. But I've also heard new stuff from Sunburst Band, Incognito and the like.
The podcasts are very nicely produced, songs mixed well, and there's minimal talking from the presenter. The music takes centre stage on this show unlike some podcast.
There's hardly any podcasts around playing the type of music that VibeRide does and VibeRide is doing a great job of keeping the mostly forgotten genre of classic funk and soul alive. Keep up the good work!
