Great Soul Performances with Bobby Jay (7p – 9p ET)

bobby-jayIt seems as though, every Saturday, or every other Saturday, I start this promo by offering condolences to the victims and victim’s families of another senseless, violent atrocity, that seems to permeate everyday life now in America. So, to San Bernardino, California, our prayers go out to you, as you endeavor to heal from the tragedy of this past week. I think we need a large dose of “Sweet Soul Music” to help us all, therefore this evening on “Great Soul Performances,” we’ll try to do just that, with music from: Ray Charles, the Manhattans, Stephanie Mills and the Original Cast of 1975’s smash Broadway hit, “The Wiz,” Bloodstone, Aretha Franklin, Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes, Isaac Hayes, Jackie Wilson & the Chi-Lites, the Temptations, the Spinners; (Live at the Latin Casino in Cherry Hill, New Jersey), and a tribute to two of my friends and fellow bass singers who passed away this week. “Mister Bassman” Ronnie Bright, of the “Valentines” and “Coasters,” and the suave, sophisticated, debonair bass of the “Heartbeats,” Wally Roker. Even though my heart is heavy, I look forward to being with you at 7PM ET, 6PM CT, 5PM MT and 4PM PT, for “Great Soul Performances,” only at the “Home of the Hits,” RadioMaxMusic.Com. Later ‘Gator!

Feature Artist: Billy Preston (Singles) 10pm ET

BillyPrestonWilliam Everett “Billy” Preston (September 2, 1946 – June 6, 2006) was an American musician whose work included R&B, rock, soul, funk and gospel. A virtuoso keyboardist, particularly on Hammond organ, Preston was recognized as a top session musician in the 1960s, during which he backed artists such as Little Richard, Sam Cooke, Ray Charles and the Beatles. He then went on to achieve fame as a solo artist, with hit pop singles including “That’s the Way God Planned It”, “Outa-Space”, “Will It Go Round in Circles”, “Space Race”, and “Nothing from Nothing”. In addition, Preston co-wrote “You Are So Beautiful”, which became a number 5 hit for Joe Cocker. Preston continued to record and perform with other artists, notably George Harrison after the Beatles’ break-up, and Eric Clapton, and he played keyboards for the Rolling Stones on many of the group’s albums and tours during the 1970s.

Alongside Tony Sheridan, Preston was the only other musician to be credited on a Beatles recording: the artists on the number-one hit “Get Back” are given as “The Beatles with Billy Preston”. Since Sheridan was labeled alongside “The Beat Brothers”, Preston is, strictly speaking, the only artist to be labeled explicitly with “The Beatles”. Stephen Stills asked Preston if he could use his phrase “if you can’t be with the one you love, love the one you’re with” and created the hit song. – Wikipedia
