On “Great Soul Performances” this evening, I’m going to do a show I’ve been wanting to do for a very long time. People always ask me about radio as it was “back in the day,” and who my inspirations, teachers, mentors and idols were.
You’re gonna find out this evening when I shine the spotlight on and pay tribute to, Douglas “Jocko” Henderson. Aside from Jocko’s on-air performances, you’ll hear his hit records as well. Along with “The Jock,” we’ll hear from Hal Jackson and Eddie O’Jay, also Charlie Greer, Stan Z. Burns and Alan Fredericks. There’ll be songs by: Minnie Riperton, Jeffrey Osborne and L.T.D., the Isley Brothers, Fourteen Karat Soul, Frankie Karl & the Dreams, the Temptations, Brenda & the Tabulations and more.
This is going to be a labor of love for me. Join me at 6PM ET, 5PM CT, 4PM MT & 3PM PT. If you remember radio when it was at it’s best, you’ve got to be here for “Great Soul Performances” later this evening with “The Original Rapper,” Douglas “Jocko” Henderson on RadioMaxMusic.Com.
“Great Soul Performances” on RadioMaxMusic.com, comes your way later this evening. On the broadcast I’ve got: George Benson, Bloodstone, Pharell Williams, the Escorts, Tito Puente, the Vibrations, Richie Cole-Eddie Jefferson & Manhattan Transfer, Jimmy Fallon with Will.I.Am, Jerry Butler & Aki Aleong, Mable John, Chuck Jackson; live in concert, plus a tribute to my mentor and teacher; the “Dean of Broadcasters” Hal Jackson, who would have turned 100 years old this past Monday. We’ll convene at 7PM ET, 6PM CT, 5PM MT and 4PM PT, so join me later for “Great Soul Performances.” It’s going to be very special.
