We’ll begin at 7PM ET, 6PM CT, 5PM MT and 4PM PT. So in the words of the late Bobby Womack, “You’re Welcome, Stop On By” at RadioMaxMusic.com.

bobby-womackWe honor Bobby Womack with his music.  5pm ET on RadioMaxMusic.

Robert Dwayne “Bobby” Womack (March 4, 1944 − June 27, 2014) was an American singer-songwriter and musician. An active recording artist since the early 1960s, when he started his career as the lead singer of his family musical group the Valentinos and as Sam Cooke’s backing guitarist, Womack’s career spanned more than 50 years and spanned a repertoire in the styles of R&B, soul, rock and roll, doo-wop, gospel, and country.

Womack wrote and originally recorded The Rolling Stones’ first UK No. 1 hit, “It’s All Over Now” and New Birth’s “I Can Understand It” among other songs. As a singer he is most notable for the hits “Lookin’ For a Love”, “That’s The Way I Feel About Cha”, “Woman’s Gotta Have It”, “Harry Hippie”, “Across 110th Street” and his 1980s hit “If You Think You’re Lonely Now”.

In 2009, Womack was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Womack’s 1968 cover of “California Dreamin'” featured prominently in 2009 British film Fish Tank by Andrea Arnold, where the main character Mia dances to it and uses it as her audition piece. The collection CD on which the song appears also plays a role, and is The Best of Bobby Womack (2008), on which “California Dreamin'” appears on track 17, as Mia requests at her audition.

Womack’s “Across 110th Street” featured in the opening and elsewhere in the film Jackie Brown, directed by Quentin Tarantino. It is used to emphasise the blaxploitation tone of the film. It was used again in the Denzel Washington film American Gangster, which depicted the actual circumstances described in the song. This song is also used for the closing credits of Season 2, Episode 3 of the TV series How to Make It in America.

Womack died on June 27, 2014 at age 70. Though the cause of his death is currently unknown, his health issues included diabetes, prostate cancer, heart trouble, colon cancer, pneumonia and alzheimers disease.
