Join Sanguine Fromage for the best in funk, soul, and jazz. UpFront Soul... 120 minutes of soulful sounds to which you may get down!

If you want your soul... get it UpFront! Producer and host Sanguine Fromage, WERU dj since 2005, serves up a weekly blend of funk, soul, and jazz, plus sprinklings of R&B, gospel, and hip-hop. UpFront Soul showcases obscure artists and back-catalogue offerings from more familiar names. You'll find West African funk, funk-enriched jazz, deep soul, and only the best modern music.

UpFront Soul is available to all public and community stations worldwide free of charge at PRX, Pacifica AudioPort, and through the A-Infos Radio Project. It airs weekly on grassroots stations from coast to coast. UpFront Soul is a weekly series, with holiday shows and specials available for one-time use.

Upfront Soul is the next incarnation of The Nightfly with Sanguine Fromage. The name has changed, but the sound remains the same.
