Every Sunday, Thabo ‘T-Bose’ Mokwele casts a wide-angled lens and connects music that has influenced Soul and is influenced by it.
Touch of Soul takes listeners into an audio journey of classics and musical gems to deepen their appreciation of good music.
Selection of gems
In every episode, T-Bose shares a unique selection of soul-infused genres like R&B, neo-soul, nu-soul, afro-soul and more.
While the choice of musicians will be familiar, listeners will be pleasantly surprised at the selection of gems not usually heard on Sunday radio.
“Bringing Touch of Soul back is basically about taking back Sundays, reflecting and matching the listener’s mood, because that is what radio should do,” T-Bose explains.
“We want to give people what they want to hear more of and restore the things that were lost along the way.”
