    Show #122 - Isaac Hayes: Channeling Black Pride and Masculinity Through Tender and Soulful Music

    Show #122 - Isaac Hayes: Channeling Black Pride and Masculinity Through Tender and Soulful Music

    From Stax Records to 'Shaft', dive into the music & influence of soul icon Isaac Hayes. As the needle drops on the conversation about Isaac Hayes, we are reminded of his profound contributions to music; he was a craftsman of the soul sound. His songwriting prowess birthed anthems like "Soul Man" and "Hold On, I'm Comin" that still resonate today. His album "Hot Buttered Soul" broke molds with its extended cuts and lush arrangements, introducing a new era of musical storytelling. Isaac Hayes' voice was one that carried the weight of the South, dripping with the intensity of the civil rights era and the heat of southern summers.
    Explore Isaac Hayes' legacy on this episode of Queue Points with DJ Sir Daniel & Jay Ray.

Hola 👋🏽

Hello QP

Just stopping by to say thank you guys for all you do for those of us who tune to watch and listen to the Podcast. It’s like going to night school in college and you both are the Professors for the QP Class. It is a treasure, I must say. The information that is available with you both is fascinating!!! I’m still looking for the day for QP to have a Show with a live audience. I’m speaking that into existence, Amen. I will keep supporting, watching, listening and sharing for my remaining days on earth. Thank You for this corner of the sky that we all can come to and hang out every Thursday night (including Whatever, Comma). Must love, blessing & music.

This heady joint is actually a series of music documentaries with two affable hosts who invite us into their living room to explore all music has to offer. Each listen I laugh, learn, and lean into the joy this offering provides.
