Andrew Ti and this week’s special guest Robbie Pickering finish the week off by discussing the genre of music known as Blue-eyed Soul. As always, leave us a message about anything you think is racist at (323) 389-RACE.

I think David Bowie was one of the first guys they referred to as "blue-eyed soul" but I think he himself said he did "plastic soul" because his lyrics were about like, fashion and emptiness and shit.

The Everly Brothers had an album called Blue-Eyed Soul in the early 60s. It was an industry term to help white folks buy and sell "soul music" during segregation.

This ep might as well been titled "For those who like Adele..."
