25 years of soulsearching ! one of four special shows, up to the anniversary date in late september.
this weekly 120 minutes started in 1997, first show ever kicked off with „new forms“ by reprazent. 
nothing else felt better back then. clearly remember how nervous i was before i turned on the microphone
„welcome to soulsearching … enjoy the music“ 
now 25 years later i am still enjoying doin this. or even more each week. music is my life. life is music. 
part one of four is filled with a few 1997 original classics, such a good year for the music! 
plus a bit of this and that. and the premiere of a lovely song out of aotearoa - big up dj kao and all freddy’s. 
could be a summer hit for sure. and oscar jerome, legendary german group Kraan, who both played 
amazingly energetic sets last week at jazz montez holidays festival. plus one from the uplifting album by 
jimetta rose & the voices of creation. doin the cosmic slop their way. 
now just enjoy the music. love . michael
oh, and happy 25th birthday luise emilie ! same year, same time . soulsearching all the way.
