This is not a history lesson. Okay, maybe it is.

Some of us grew up without much (or any) access to non-white artists on the radio. (Thankfully, the times have changed!) Those of us in the Toronto area had Buffalo’s WBLK radio to get us through, but reception wasn’t always great. To make up for what traditional radio programmers willfully neglected back then, R&B Classics features all your favourite R&B/Soul artists.

From major artists like Aretha Franklin, Teddy Pendergrass, and Gladys Knight & the Pips to lesser-known acts like Champaign and Britain’s The Real Thing, the R&B Classics show has something for the connoisseur and novice. Tune in. Lay back. Turn on.

  • R&B Classics airs Wednesdays @ 8:00 p.m.
  • Repeats Saturdays @ 3:00 p.m. and Sundays @ 1:00 p.m.
