    8 JUN. 2024 · Story by: Gail Nobles Intro music by: Gail Nobles Walk Away From Love  Is a song recorded by David Ruffin in 1975. The million selling single was Ruffins only number one R&B hit. Nobody could sing like David Ruffin. His voice really spoke to people through music. You can feel feeling from the words of the song because of his voice.   The lyrics say: I'm gonna walk away from love before love breaks my heart. He makes love sound like it's something to be feared because of fear within. He doesn't want his heartbroken. So David sings about walking away.  The song Walk Away From Love was number one on the US R&B singles chart for one week in early 1976, and crossed over to number nine on the pop charts. In Canada, the song peak that number 30. Thank you for listening to Sound Flave. I am your host Gail Nobles.

I'm Gail Nobles. Welcome to Sound Flave. Today's topic is Whole House Full of Kings & Queens.  Motown had a whole House full of kings and Queens. Smokey Robinson and the Miracles, Diana Ross and the Supremes, Stevie Wonder, and Aretha Franklin, and a whole list of them in the same house.  Now Michael Jackson is the number one king in the world. He started out as a Motown star with his brothers the Jackson 5.  Aretha Franklin is the Queen of Soul. She's another Motown star.  Whitney Houston reigned as the Queen of Pop.  James Brown is Godfather of Soul.  Looks like to me, there is room for all that work hard to be number one in music. Rolling Stone has written an article titled The 200 Greatest asingers of All Time.  Today you hear rumors among fans: Who is a far better singer than who?  I don't understand why people compare singers.  When I was growing up hearing Motown, listening with family and friends, everybody just enjoyed the music.  When disco came along all of the singers got an applied in the 80s. We loved of course Michael Jackson, Lionel Richie, Madonna, and the list goes on.  There were so many singers that the world enjoyed.  Now we are being told that they'll never be another James Brown or Michael Jackson. I don't know why because there are some more talented people out there just like them or better than them. God gave so many people so much talent, and if you're trying to get into the business, we all know that if it's not about talent, it ain't the music business, and there should be room for all. I’m Gail Nobles. Thank you for listening.

    1 MAR. 2024 · Story by: Gail Nobles Intro by: Gail Nobles Today's topic on Radiea Applis Soul is Bill Moss: Socket It To Em Soul Brother. Hello! I'm Gail Nobles. Welcome to Sound Flave. You're listening to the Radiea Applis Soul podcast edition. Bill Moss was a local singer and DJ at WVKO in Columbus. Short for Capital City Soul, the Columbus Ohio Capsule label’s history spans only five years throughout the 1970s founded by Bill Moss. Eccentric Soul: The Capsule Label is a compilation of 19 tracks spanning the label’s all but forgotten history. One of the songs on the compilation album was titled Socket It To Him Soul Brother by Bill Moss. In the song, he mentioned that he once had the pleasure of meeting Dr. King, and he asked the question: What I say?” Then the back up group would back him up by saying: Socket It To Him So Brother. The song was released on the Bell Records label in 1969. I won't say that it's an instrumental record, and I won't say that it's a rap record as far as rhyming. But it has that rap style. It's a soul record in the soul genre. On the compilation album released in 2004 or other songs by other music artist by the label The Numero Group. I would like to add that the single Socket To Him Soul Brother was also released on the Pama Records Label. I don't know if the song was a hit, but it sure sounds like a hit.

They were an R&B singing duo whose big hits were I’m Your Puppet in 1966, which reached number six in the US Billboard Hot 100 Chart and "Let Love Come Between Us" in 1967, which reached number 23 in the US. The original "Bobby Purify" (Robert Lee Dickey) was replaced by a second "Bobby Purify" (Ben Moore) in the 1970s. James Lee Purify was cousin to the original Robert Lee Dickie formed in 1965. I'd like to talk about their single So Many Reasons. It is a great song too.It's a song that some may not have heard. It's a single that comes from the album Shake A Tail Feather! The best of James & Bobby Purify released in 2002. The song So Many Reasons is telling all the reasons why someone is loved. James and Bobby are singing and telling the story. Songwriters knew how to write down in words the reasons why they loved someone in those days, and the singers didn't have a hard time expressing and explaining it. You could see and feel their emotions. You're listening to Sound Flave. Radiae Applis Soul. I’m your host, Gail Nobles. Today's topic: James and Bobby Purify.

  • Marmalade-Reflections of My Life 12:1:23 4.57 PM

    1 DIC. 2023 · Intro by: Gail Nobles Photo: https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=User:Theoldcomposer&action=edit&redlink=1 - Own work Usage: Wikipedia https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0 Reflections of my life was a 1969/1970 hit single for the Scottish band Marmalade. It was written by their lead guitarist Junior Campbell and singer Dean Ford. Released in late 1969, it was the band’s first release on Decca following an earlier spell at CBS. The song went on to chart worldwide reaching number three in the UK in 1969, number 10 in the US and 1970 on the Billboard Hot 100, and number seven on the Cash Box Top 100. Initial sales were significant in both countries. In the kind of world we're living in today, I often think of some of the words to the song. The part when Marmalade sings, “The world is a bad place, a bad place. A terrible place to live. Oh, but I don't wanna die. Today the song is more than a song to me. The band was singing the way I feel right now. Reflections of My Life is a meaningful song. I love the guitars I hear in the song and the harmony of Marmalade. And most of all, the words. I’m Gail Nobles. Thank you for listening to Sound Flave.

  • Diana Ross 10:16:23 4.21 PM

    16 OCT. 2023 · Keyboardist: Gail Nobles Diana Ross. She rose to fame as the lead singer of the vocal group The Supremes, who became Motown's most successful act during the 1960s and one of the world's best-selling girl groups of all time. They remain the best-charting female group in history with a total of twelve number-one hit singles on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, including "Where Did Our Love Go", "Baby Love", "Come See About Me", "Stop! In the Name of Love", and "Love Child". Following her departure from the Supremes in 1970, Ross embarked on a successful solo music career with the release of her eponymous debut solo album and its singles, "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" – her first solo U.S. number-one hit – and "Reach Out and Touch (Somebody's Hand)". My favorite song from Diana Ross isAin’t No Mountain High Enough. She sang her version beautifully. I love her beginning speech to the song as the Motown Orchestra plays and the choir sings. Diana’s spoken voice is beautiful for the song saying: If you need, me call me. You’re listening to Sound Flave. Today’s topic: Diana Ross.

  • The Beatles 10:14:23 3.20 PM

    14 OCT. 2023 · Keyboardist: Gail Nobles Hello! I'm Gail Nobles.Welcome to Sound Flave. I don't know anyone that doesn't know anything about the Beatles. What I remember most about the Beatles is their hit song Let It Be. It was written by Paul McCartney and credited to Lennon McCartney partnership. It’s a wonderful song. It sounds as if it was written just for me, and some of you might feel the same. At the time, it had the highest debut on the Billboard Hot 100, beginning its chart run at number 6 and eventually reaching the top. It was the Beatles' final single before McCartney announced his departure from the band. McCartney said he had the idea of "Let It Be" after he had a dream about his mother during the tense period surrounding the sessions for The Beatles ("the White Album") in 1968. Mary Patricia McCartney died of cancer in 1956, when he was fourteen. I can feel what McCartney went through, and his song certainly made me realize the meaning during the time my mother was leaving me. Did you know that Billy Preston played organ and electric piano for the Beatles? He played the organ for the song Let It Be. I've also seen Billy Preston performed the song live on piano. Well I hope that you're enjoying Sound Flave. Thank you for listening.

The song reached number 14 on the US billboard Hot 100 in 1982. It was a bigger Adult Contemporary hit reaching number five in the US and number six in Canada. One Hundred Ways received the 1982 Grammy award for best R&B vocal performance.

Hello! I'm Gail Nobles, and today I want to talk about the Dionne Warwick song Déjà Vu. It is a 1979 hit ballad written by Isaac Hayes with lyricist Adrienne Anderson, recorded by Dionne Warwick for her album Dionne which Barry Manilow produced. The song won Warwick a Grammy Award for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance at the 22nd Grammy Awards. Issued in November 1979 as the album's second single – following up Warwick's top ten comeback hit "I'll Never Love This Way Again" – "Déjà Vu" rose to number 15 on the US Billboard Hot 100, number 25 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, and number one on the Adult Contemporary chart in early 1980. I remember the song Déjà Vu when it was played many times on the radio.And in the 70s, I don't remember the Grammy Awards airing live or anyone mentioning the Grammys until the 1980s. The Grammys aired live on television for the first time in 1971, but as much as I heard Dionne’s song on the radio, I knew it was a hit. Radio was how I knew. You’re listening to Sound Flave. I’m your host, Gail Nobles. Today’s topic: Dionne’s Deja Vu.
