Free Soul Music

45 RPM singleMarch 20: It‚Äôs 31 Days of Free Music month at Podcasting News. Every day in March, we‚Äôre going to do our best to hook you up a great free music podcast. And if we should skip a day because we’ve got jet-lag and we’re suffering from nights of 2 hours of sleep, don’t worry. We’ve still got a lot of great free music shows to talk about.

If you don’t know about WFMU, a non-commercial, freeform radio station broadcasting at 91.1 Mhz FM in Jersey City, NJ, it’s time that you find about them.

WFMU receives absolutely no corporate or government funding – they are 100% funded by listeners. Because it’s funded by listeners, it doesn’t have to play what the record companies want you to hear or what Clear Channel wants you to hear. The station’s management lets DJ’s control their program content. Imagine that!

One of WFMU’s shows is Downtown Soulville with Mr. Fine Wine. Mr. Fine Wine plays obscure soul 45’s. Every show delivers an hour of 20 or more classic soul tracks, and just enough talk to let you know who the artists are that recorded the songs.

You can preview the Downtown Soulville podcast below, check out playlists at the Downtown Soulville site, or subscribe to the podcast by adding this URL to your podcast software:
