Saturday 7pm ET: Great Soul Performances with Bobby Jay

On this last weekend before the holidays, would you believe, winter officially begins at 11:19 tonight, and this morning as we speak, I’m working feverishly with Santa to put together 2 holiday playlists of music to aid you in your last minute holiday shopping and tree trimming activities. You’ll most likely hear on “Great Soul Performances”: Jimmy Castor, Jose Feliciano, the Golden Gate Quartet, Nat “King” Cole, Luther Vandross, Chris Brown, and I think I’m going to be singing myself with the likes of the “Legendary” Teenagers, Joel & the Dymensions (in the guise of Santa’s Doo Wop Helpers) and with Kid Kyle & his Kool Kats, also you’ll hear Eartha Kitt, James Brown, Pearl Bailey, the Salsoul Orchestra and others. It will start at 7PM ET, 6PM CT, 5PM MT & 4PM PT.

And if that weren’t enough, at 9PM ET, 8PM CT, 7PM MT and 6PM PT it will be time for more Holiday music on “Great Soul Performances 2: The 80s” where we’ll present: Gladys Knight & the Pips, the Temptations, Sir Paul McCartney, Bon Jovi, Kurtis Blow, New Edition, Run D.M.C., Gerald Alston, Johnny Maestro & the Brooklyn Bridge, Ray Charles and a lot more. Encore time as always will happen tomorrow Sunday at 5PM ET. It all happens here on RadioMaxMusic.Com. Now, like Emu & Doug, Santa and I have to get back to work. HO! HO! HO!
