Programming Note: I think most of you have heard that I lost another friend and co-worker this week. Ironically at 101 PM on Tuesday January 28th, we lost “New York’s Morning Mayor” Harry Harrison of WMCA 570 AM, WABC 770 AM and WCBS-FM 101.1. So next Saturday February 8th, I’ll be paying tribute to Harry on “Great Soul Performances.” I hope you’ll tune in. And remember to “Unwrap Each Day Like A Precious Gift.”

I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday weekend, and that Christmas Day, yesterday, was all you wanted it to be. As the holiday week continues, we’re going to get a jump on New Year’s Eve this evening, as “Great Soul Performances” rolls up the rug prepares to party hardy with music from: Lou Rawls, the Manhattans, Charles Brown, the Shirelles, Chuck Jackson, Bobby Darin, something new from the Coasters, Darlene Love, the Ramsey Lewis Trio, Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Jordan, and a Christmas bag full of many others. Join me at 7PM ET, 6PM CT, 5PM MT and 4PM PT, and just like last weekend, we will continue the party tomorrow on “Great Soul Performances 2: The 80s.” I just ran out of egg nog, so I’ve got to run to the store for more, but I’ll see you later for “G.S.P.” right here on RadioMaxMusic.Com.
