(7Pm) The second hour of “Great Soul Performances” this evening, will be devoted to Don Covay. You’ll hear many of the hits that he recorded along with the Goodtimers, as well the songs he wrote for Aretha Franklin, Gladys Knight & the Pips, Chubby Checker and the records with Ben E. 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. We start at 7PM ET, 6PM CT, 5PM MT & 4PM PT following the encore presentation of last Sunday’s “Great Soul Performances 2: The 80’s” at 5PM eastern time. So join me for some great music and help me say goodbye to my dear and special friend Don Covay later today on “Great Soul Performances” on RadioMaxMusic.com.
We’ve come to the end of May. On this 31st of May, I think it’s wise to bring you up-to-date with changes here at RadioMax. We will no longer offer replays or encore performances of our shows. Instead the programs will be available “On Demand” beginning the following Monday. Also, “Great Soul Performances 2: The 80’s” will not air on Wednesdays any longer. Here’s how it will go down. “Great Soul Performances” (The Original) will air as usual on Saturdays at 7PM ET, and “Great Soul Performances 2″ The 80’s” will air now on Sundays at 5PM ET. Both shows will be available the following Monday “On Demand.”
Listeners can click on the PODCAST link, or go direct to http://radiomaxmusic.com/podcasts.html for a listing of all the RadioMax programs available “On Demand.” With all of that said, this evening on “Great Soul Performances” you will hear: Major Lance, Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes, James Brown, Bill Doggett, Little Anthony & the Imperials, Don Covay, Jackie Wilson, the Chi-Lites, Angel Rissoff, Patti Drew, with Stephanie Mills & Tom Jones (live in concert) and a lot, lot more.
