It seems as though, every Saturday, or every other Saturday, I start this promo by offering condolences to the victims and victim’s families of another senseless, violent atrocity, that seems to permeate everyday life now in America. So, to San Bernardino, California, our prayers go out to you, as you endeavor to heal from the tragedy of this past week. I think we need a large dose of “Sweet Soul Music” to help us all, therefore this evening on “Great Soul Performances,” we’ll try to do just that, with music from: Ray Charles, the Manhattans, Stephanie Mills and the Original Cast of 1975’s smash Broadway hit, “The Wiz,” Bloodstone, Aretha Franklin, Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes, Isaac Hayes, Jackie Wilson & the Chi-Lites, the Temptations, the Spinners; (Live at the Latin Casino in Cherry Hill, New Jersey), and a tribute to two of my friends and fellow bass singers who passed away this week. “Mister Bassman” Ronnie Bright, of the “Valentines” and “Coasters,” and the suave, sophisticated, debonair bass of the “Heartbeats,” Wally Roker. Even though my heart is heavy, I look forward to being with you at 7PM ET, 6PM CT, 5PM MT and 4PM PT, for “Great Soul Performances,” only at the “Home of the Hits,” RadioMaxMusic.Com. Later ‘Gator!

King, Joe Tex, Solomon Burke and Arthur Conley that they recorded as the “Soul Clan.” Several years ago I saluted the late Bobby Robinson at WCBS-FM and Don was one of my special guests, talking about how Bobby gave him his first opportunity to record along with the “Rainbows” when they came up to New York from Washington, D.C. You’ll hear Don Covay in his own words. Also on the program will be music from: Natalie Cole, Curtis Mayfield, the Meters, Mtume, David Ruffin and others.
