Programming Note: I think most of you have heard that I lost another friend and co-worker this week. Ironically at 101 PM on Tuesday January 28th, we lost “New York’s Morning Mayor” Harry Harrison of WMCA 570 AM, WABC 770 AM and WCBS-FM 101.1. So next Saturday February 8th, I’ll be paying tribute to Harry on “Great Soul Performances.” I hope you’ll tune in. And remember to “Unwrap Each Day Like A Precious Gift.”
Shalamar is a Grammy winning American R&B and soul music vocal group, active since the mid-1970s and throughout the 1980s, that was originally a disco-driven vehicle created by Soul Train booking agent Dick Griffey and show creator and producer Don Cornelius. They went on to be an influential dance trio, masterminded by Cornelius. As noted in the British Hit Singles & Albums, they were regarded as fashion icons and trendsetters, and helped to introduce “body-popping” to the United Kingdom. Their collective name, “Shalamar”, was picked by Griffey.
