Soulsations takes listeners on an engaging musical journey of R&B and Gospel music.

You’ll hear the sounds of Maze Featuring Frankie Beverly, dubbed the best kept secret in the industry, musical innovators Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye along with other tunes from Motown’s golden era. You’ll discover the distinct sounds of contemporary gospel from Yolanda Adams to the long-time a cappella gospel quartet the Fairfield Four, known as house wreckers because they “bring down the house” when they perform. We’ll also showcase new works from seasoned veterans like Chaka Khan and CeCe Winans.

Host Carla Eckels has been recognized numerous times for her work on Soulsations, including DJ Personality of the Year by the Kansas Association of Broadcasters. Join Carla every week for an hour of pure musical enjoyment.
