PBS Goes Old Skool With SOUL!
Although its run ended just after we began, PBS’ seminal Black music show SOUL! grooves on. Indeed, fans of now iconic funksters ranging from Earth, Wind and Fire and Max Roach to Ashford & Simpson and Tito Puente will be super-stoked to know that SOUL! episodes are now available for easy-access viewing on Thirteen.org.
Shot in NYC between 1968 and 1973, each episode is an hour of pure back-in-the-day fun from the show’s five years on the air and a peek into Black America at the height of the Civil Rights era.
