Rob Seligmann

Host, Funky Boombox

Rob Seligmann first started playing classic soul and funk on the radio as the host of an oldies program in Peoria, Illinois in the late 1990s. Taking a cue from 60s AM Radio, his show played James Brown and Joe Tex side by side with The Beatles and The Turtles. In May 2010, he attended a concert by Sharon Jones and The Dap Kings and was inspired to search for more artists with that classic 60s soul sound. He discovered a plethora of funk-revival and neo-soul artists. Started in the summer of 2017, "Funky Boombox" combines these two worlds, vintage and modern soul and funk. Find it on Friday nights from 10 to Midnight.
