I’m really feeling my mortality today. Muhammad Ali’s passing on Friday, brings home the fact that my generation is beginning to leave the stage of life in increasing numbers. Ali was one of the most iconic figures of the 20th century, who’s talent both in and out of the boxing ring will never be matched. He could act, light on his feet; he was quite a dancer, he was an original rapper, he was a poet; and boy did he know it, and he even fancied himself a singer. So this evening on “Great Soul Performances,” we are going to salute and pay tribute to “The Greatest,” Muhammad Ali. You will hear Ali in his own words, which will be a nostalgic remembrance for those of us who grew up with him, and for those much younger people who weren’t blessed to have those memories, I think it will be an eye-opening (or is it, ear-opening) experience. You’ll also hear music from the likes of: Lou Rawls, the Supremes, Van Morrison, Jimmy Castor, the Temptations, Joe Bataan, Bobby Byrd, the Desires, the Emotions, Dyke & the Blazers and others. Our tribute begins at 7PM ET, 6PM CT, 5PM MT & 4PM PT. Muhammad Ali will forever be “The Greatest Of All Time!” Join me and let’s celebrate his life and career this evening on “Great Soul Performances” at the home of the “Greatest Hits of The 60s, 70s, and 80s,” RadioMaxMusic.Com.
