The Gospel Sound

Sundays 3PM

Presented by Tim Gunn

A musical excursion under the radar of popular music to the world of American gospel music. Obscured by subject matter and race, gospel is one of the most vibrant and soulful music forms and a direct influence on soul, blues, jazz and beyond.

Presented by Tim Gunn the show centres on the fertile recording scene following WWII.
