Bel-Aire Drive is a weekly showcase for the sounds of Soul, Funk, Blues and Rhythm & Blues of the 1960s and 70s with WMOT host, Greg Lee

The show Bel-Aire Drive represents the musical musings of a working class kid growing up in one of the South's most diverse neighborhoods.

Bel-Aire Drive in the late 1960s through the 1970s was something of a cultural crossroad. From house to house, backyard to kitchen, front porch to street side, the residents used their music - R&B, Soul, jazz and Blues - as one incredible, peace inspiring soundtrack - laying the groundwork for fellowship & friendship across the racially charged socio-economic divides of the day.

Longtime music host Greg Lee lived on that street for 15 years. He saw the power of good music firsthand. Each week he shares the music enjoyed along Bel-Aire Drive back then!
