Hosts of “Soul Train” host Soul Train Rewards are taking their brand new music podcast, Soul Train Hosts, one step further.
The hosts have teamed up with a brand-spanking-new music podcast to offer listeners a way to pay off a host of up to $25,000 in rewards.
You can now pay for any of the host’s favorite songs and get their rewards.
In addition to hosting the rewards, hosts can also host an online show for their listeners to tune in to, along with other perks.
The rewards come out of their own pockets.
“It’s not like we’re going to pay for the entire show,” said host Adam Scott.
“We’re just going to make a small portion of it back, which is great because it helps us support our amazing fans.”

They’re also working with a local music industry partner to help pay for their upcoming shows, including one in San Francisco.
Scott said the new podcast is “a way for people to get a taste of the music and the people that make it.”
“The biggest thing is the listeners are going to get to see a lot of their favorite artists live and it’s going to be a great opportunity to meet them and interact with them,” Scott said.
The new reward system comes as a big deal for listeners, especially since the hosts don’t necessarily get to make money off the shows themselves.
The first season of Soul Trax Hosts premiered in October and the podcast has since been downloaded nearly 10 million times.
Scott and co-host Ryan Matson host the show and have a strong track record in producing new shows.
They’ve previously hosted music competitions, such as the Iron Chef Hosts and the Cobra Hosts series.
“They’ve been a big part of the success of this show,” Scott added.
The duo said they’re excited to bring the Soul Train experience to listeners, with their own brand of entertainment.
“I think we have the best brand, the most loyal listeners,” Scott explained.
“This is an opportunity for people who want to see the shows and to experience it and really connect with the music.”
Scott and Matson said they hope the new rewards help the hosts and listeners make the transition to a new show as easy as possible.
“Our goal is to make it a lot easier to jump into the show,” Matson added.
“If it doesn’t work out, we’ll definitely go back and re-make it.
We want to keep the excitement and the excitement of the show going.”
“It will be an easy transition to the new show,” he added.
In fact, Scott said he and Miggs will continue to host the shows online, with no need to be in the studio with the host.
“In fact, I’m not going to go to the studio for the first show,” the host added.
He said it’s “just a way of putting it out there.”
The hosts plan to host another show in the Bay Area in the coming weeks.
“Hopefully we can get this show out there on a big stage,” Miggs said.
“And it’ll be the first of many new shows.”
