Deserving Soul Final Broadcast on December 16th

Deserving Soul Planning Final Broadcast on December 16th

The sound of that statement seems unreal, untrue, not to mention just plain sad…but, yes, after 9 years of giving a weekly 2-hour shot of Soul Music to the KSPC community of listeners, Deserving Soul will be coming to an end on Saturday, December 16th with the final broadcast from 1 to 3 p.m.

When asked about reaching the show’s conclusion, Ike Rhythm responded “This was a difficult decision to make given my love of music, soul music in particular, and KSPC. And who knows, I may at some point decide I miss it too much and want to revive the show. But for now, just know that I greatly appreciate all the listeners who have tuned in over the years, called me at the station with questions, comments, or requests, and especially those who called just to share their appreciation and love…and know that I will miss being a small part of every listener’s life every Saturday afternoon.”

“So, as we say at the end of each broadcast…Keep your soul light shining, keep the home fires burning, get out there on the good foot, and have a great week, see ya next time around, take care…”

Ike Rhythm

    I’ve already sent a heartfelt e-mail to Ike, but I’ll just publicly state right here how much I have enjoyed his program over the years, both for the music I grew up with and those I’d never heard before and our now on my “favorites” list. Good luck, sir, Happy Holidays, and thanks for the musical memories…with SOUL.

    I will definitely miss Ike Rhythm and Deserving Soul. I have been tuning in religiously to the show every Saturday via radio or through the website. I wish all the best to Ike and know that the soul music makes everything good.

    I will miss the music, will your slot be replaced with the same genre? hope you come back. I just started listening to you for about a year now and looked forward to my Saturday afternoons. Stay safe.

    Dear Lord of Soul Music,

    Please, oh Please Please Please persuade Ike Rhythm to keep Deserving Soul’s heart beating!

    I am devastated to hear this news. You were my go-to when doing the “domestics” in the kitchen and cleaning my house. Loved your combination of bringing themes and obscure facts about a wonderful era of music. You will be terribly missed!! Please do come back!!

    Was a big fan, and I’m missing Ike and the music he played already. So, KSPC, where’s the podcast so I can re-hear it in its entirety?

    Unfortunately we can’t podcast Ike’s old shows due to the Digital Millenium Copyright Act.
