Soul Discovery Top 10's for 2007

This year, one of my listening delights has been Mick O'Donnell's Soul Discovery.

The blurb on Radio 209's website sums it up perfectly for me:

Mick's enthusiasm for the music, the mixture of music styles played, the telephone interviews with the artists and the guests in the studio who are mainly collectors/DJs gives the show a great feel and personality.

Mick asked several of his regular guests to contribrute their top 10's for 2007 which are listed below:

Theryl “Love makes the world go round”
Parker’s “This worlds gone mad”, .
