Saturday 7pm / Sunday 5pm ET: Great Soul Performances with Bobby Jay

As difficult as I’m sure it will be, this evening on “Great Soul Performances” we will be saluting and paying tribute to one of my childhood friends; the tallest kid in the neighborhood, the late Leroy Binns, who sang with the Charts, the Cadillacs, the Del Vikings and others.

There’ll be music by the Charts, Little Isidore & the Inquisitors, Joel & the Dymensions, Jimmy Castor, the Cadillacs, J.R. Bailey, Laura Nyro with LaBelle (Patti LaBelle-Sarah Dash-Nona Hendryx), the Dovells, the Encounters, Les Cooper & his Soul Rockers, Prince Joseph’s Premiers (Joe Grier), plus I’ll be joined by Leroy’s friends, Joe Grier, Reggie Barnes, Dickie Harmon, Paul Roland Martinez, Joe Rivera and Earl Swindell with their recollections of Leroy. The tribute begins at 7PM ET, 6PM CT, 5PM MT and 4PM PT.

Following “G.S.P.” will be “Great Soul Performances 2: The 80s,” where on the playlist you’ll hear songs by: Teddy Pendergrass, El DeBarge, Fred Parris & the Satins, Stephanie Mills, the Trammps, Aaron Neville & the Neville Brothers, the Clark Sisters, Billy Joel, Roberta Flack & Donny Hathaway, Johnny Mathis, Gladys Knight & the Pips and more.
