Andy Beggs

Washed ashore on a lonely island in the sea is this week's guest castaway Andy Beggs.

Andy is a DJ and radio presenter in the UK with a passion and knowledge of Soul, Jazz and House music... Soulful House, in particular, has motivated Andy to master the art of beat mixing.

He joined Soulstice Radio 24 on the back of successful stints on two other Soul Radio stations.  Previously titled Souldonuts, Andy's Soul Show is now called Soultimate and entertains his listeners with two hours of pure Soul, Jazz, Rare Groove and Lovers Rock.

Andy also provides a Soulful House mix every Friday on Soul In The Dales Radio.

Maze - Happy Feelin's

"I chose 'Happy Feelin's' from their 'Live In New Orleans' album because it's my all time favourite soul album and 'Happy Feelin's' is just one of those tunes that really sums up Maze for me : Total soul and total entertainers. I was lucky enough to see them at the Hammersmith Odeon."

Terry Callier - Ordinary Joe

"One of the reasons I started listening to modern soul and crossover was because of this record. It always reminds me of the soul house parties we used to have back in the 80's. This really has everything for me."
Sam Dees - After All

"This really sums up what soul music is for me... sung straight from the heart by Sam Dees. Hairs on the back of the neck stuff."

Leroy Hutson - Get To This (You'll Get To Me)

"My favourite modern soul tune... I never get tired of listening to this. It's a real feelgood factor piece of soul music... and Leroy's great voice as well !"

Marvin Gaye - Where Are We Going (Alternative Mix)

"No list would be complete without the great Marvin Gaye.  This record, for me, defines what soul music is about. When I first heard it, unreleased on one of the compilation cd's, it stopped me dead in my tracks.  Hair on the back of the neck stuff.. a total awesome tune by Marvin Gaye. I still get the same effect with the track, even now."
