Pod-Cast & Track-listing: The Morpheus Soul Show {14th Jan '12}

It’s our second LIVE show of 2012 and it’s time once again for our annual Morpheus Soul Best Of 2011 Awards, affectionately known as The Larrys’. The show normally airs on the first Saturday of every New Year but we had so many tough decisions to make, that we had to hold off for another seven days until we all decided that we were happy with our choices made!

Check out who we selected as our 2011 favourite Female Artist, Soul Album, EP, Live Show, Best Emcee, Hip-Hop Album, Best Female Artist, Producer/Compilation Album & the Lifetime Achievement Award for their contribution to Morpheus Soul Music!!!
