“Have A Little Faith” by Brett Koshkin

Brett Koshkin Podcast

The stars at night are big and bright – DEEP IN THE HEART OF TEXAS!

It is an honor for us to share with you this artfully crafted mix, lovingly transferred to the MP3 format by our favorite Houstonian currently presiding in our beloved Brooklyn, the incomparable Brett Koshkin.  When Brett’s not writing cover stories for the Village Voice, posting pictures of plus-size cats on Instagram, preparing delicious feats, or obsessing over the TSU Toronados – he’s probably buying, playing, or listening to first rate Soul 45s. Thankfully for us, he decided to put together some of his favorites for us to enjoy. So sit back, grab a Lone Star, maybe some chili (don’t you dare put beans in it), and get down to some quality Texas Soul. On the count of three: One… Two… Three…  THANKS BRETT!

Disclaimer: Not all selections are from Texas.
