Tobias Kirmayer's 'Soul Popcorn' Radioshow

Tobias Kirmayer is best known for his Tramp Record label but he hosts a radio show called Soul Popcorn with Daniel Köhler. here's what Tobis has to say about the show:

Together with Daniel Köhler I started a two-weekly radio show called 'Soul Popcorn' in march 2006. It takes place every second wednesday on Munich's independent radio station M94.5. We focus on Rare Funk, Raw Soul & Latin-Boogaloo. You can listen to it via live stream.For more info click here.

Here's Tobias's profile:

I began collecting records in the early 1990s. Influenced by my brother's excellent music tastes, I too quickly became a vinyl junky. At first only interested in Funk/Soul and Hip Hop, my musical interests developed over the years, adding Afro, Latin/Brasilian and funky Breaks and Beats to my pallet. In 2000 I became a professional DJ. In the same year I was touring Europe with 'The Poets of Rhythm', the worlds first retro-funk band which brought back the deep funk sound and had released one of their last albums on DJ Shadow's Quannum label. I continued DJ-ing and finally did a huge tour in June/July 2006 where I toured Europe and Australia to promote my second compilation 'Movements 2'. Watch out for the first compilation on Tramp entitled "This Is My Thing" which is out by May 2007.

    This is really great to hear the music of U.S Crockett doing Sunshine Superman exist for me to listen to. My sister Lettie J Glaude managed the group during that time. It was one of my first experiences getting to know the inner workings of a band. The band let me do my first jam at 12 years old with them. I always wonder what happened to Crockett as sis use to call him. Later in my career as a trumpeter and trombonist I saw Butch Hayes on the Ave (Telegraph Ave Berkeley, CA) when he was playing with Malo. How can I get a copy of this music.

    It is great to know what happened to Ulysses S. Crockett. My sister managed Crockett's band for awhile and he let me jam with then a practice when I was 12 years old. The experience spurred me on to do music and not fall into a life of crime as so many inner city black kids eventually did back in the late 60's. I had trouble listening to the music when it is fixed I be really jazzed to listen. I will never forget Sunshine Superman

  6. 'Butch' can now be glimpsed on this Youtube video which I shot some years ago and kept in the archives.
