A little late to the party on this one, but until SoulBounce has a dedicated DJ (hint hint, managing editor says "Apply!"), you can rest knowing that someone out there is addressing your daily worksafe music-listening needs.
Soul-Tracks (which tends to be a pretty reliable source of info for us) has teamed up with Yahoo's LAUNCHcast to initiate "Soul Revival", a station that we would've done ourselves if we weren't so obsessed with Hip-Hop half the time (and if we had a DJ; hint #2). Via Yahoo Music:
Soul music was the pulse of the urban communities of the 60s. It
helped to evolve R&B with different styles, ranging from Motown to
the Philly sound to Southern Soul. From the smooth-sounding production
to the raw and gritty vocals, soul music has been a mainstay in
America. Although throughout the years soul music has branched out from
the likes of James Brown, Sam & Dave and Aretha Franklin, it has
never faded away. Soul is back and better than ever with artists like
Eric Roberson, Alice Smith and N'Dambi. So do yourself a favor, and
take in the sounds of the "Soul Revival"--you won't be disappointed.
So that means no "Ay Bay Bay"? Bummer. But on the serious, this is right in line with our own as yet unpublished manifesto. There's a community of web-surfing music listeners out there that has been under-served, and not being assaulted by the sounds of MC MurderDeath and the JumpSuit Boyz every time you log into Yahoo sounds pretty golden. We're so there.
Also, don't get too used to the handy-dandy worksafe-themed Deezer jukebox over in our far right column. The industry has caught on and, well, you know how they are.
