Soul Power on WWOZ FM
Lost and Found on Red Bull Radio

Soul Power on WWOZ
Soul Power with Soul Sister on WWOZ airs every Saturday night from 8:00 – 10:00 pm CDT. New Orleans residents can tune in on the radio at 90.7 FM. Worldwide listeners can enjoy the show via the WWOZ smartphone app or wwoz.org. The station makes past shows available on demand via its 2-Week Archive. Soul Sister has been with WWOZ since 1994. When she started as a freshman in college, she was the youngest person to have her own program. Today she’s a station veteran, having logged nearly 25 years of service to the beloved non-profit, commercial-free station. Soul Power is the longest running rare groove radio show in the U.S., and selections are 100% from Soul Sister’s collection and 99% vinyl.


Lost and Found on Red Bull Radio
My monthly show on Red Bull Radio, called Lost and Found, premiered in July 2018 and will air on the third Tuesday of the month. Each episode will feature me presenting music from my collection, based on different themes. To listen, go to redbullradio.com or download the Red Bull Radio app on your phone. Visit the Lost and Found show page for updates on airing and re-stream dates and times.
