Hello I'm Nigel Thomas & welcome to The Soul Train. My passion for this music started in the mid 80s when soul music had really taken off mainstream, being played on commercial radio stations & being a huge success. My influences came from Richard Searling, Mike Shaft & Ray Rose. They 'educated' me into fine music! I started The Surrey Hills Soul Train in February 2018 on Surrey Hills Community Radio in Leatherhead, Surrey and continues with growing listenership. In March 2020, I launched The Surrey Hills Soul Train onto internet radio in order that I could play more than just my three hours a week and help artists gain more air play & promotion, so here we are, playing the most upfront soul, smooth jazz & gospel as well as keeping up with all the latest chart show that matter from all around the world.
Later this year I will be releasing some artists music onto old fashioned 7 inch vinyl.
Our Mission is to provide quality innovative programs that support indie soul artists & provide a platform to play their music and get it heard all around the world, 24 hours a day.
