The Lewis Dee Show

One of my favorite on-air personalities is Lewis Dee.  He plays a grown and sexy mix of southern soul, blues, old skool, back in the day R&B, and classic soul music.  I've been listening to him and following him for some time now and I'm honored to call him a friend.

Lewis Dee's "Grown and Sexy" show is syndicated with quite a few internet radio stations and the airing of his show is growing and growing.  One of the great things about the internet is that you can find southern soul any time.  As a result, you can find Lewis Dee's show every day of the week and below is a list of most of the places it is aired.

Katrenia Jefferson - "Living a Lie"

I heard this the other day and I have not been able to get it out of my head.  I love it and wrote about it a little while ago - see my post from a year ago: http://southernsoulparadise.blogspot.com/2016/01/katrenia-jefferson-living-lie.html.   Katrenia Jefferson's voice is amazing!!!

Listen to this awesome chorus:
Heartbroken, living a lie
Love broken, and no alibi
I got tears on my face
And my heart's out of place
I'm wounded inside
And my heart can't deny

Love this!!

RIP Big Cynthia - "Let Me See Your Rock"

I am so hurt; it's not for us to understand.

I love this song and was getting ready to post it the other day.  Big Cynthia has been on the charts for the last few months and I was looking forward to hearing more music from her.  I'll miss her unique style and the joy she brought to the music.

My prayers go out to Cynthia Walker's family.
