Great Soul Performances with Bobby Jay 7pm ET #gsp #GETONUP

James-BrownThe motion picture biography of the “Godfather of Soul,” “Get On Up” opened nationwide yesterday, and it occurred to me that I had never done a tribute to James Brown since he passed away on Christmas Day in 2006. Therefore this evening on “Great Soul Performances” it’ll be wall to wall James Brown. You’ll of course hear several of the big hits, but you’ll also hear many songs that weren’t big hits, but truly represent the “hardest working man in show business. I also plan to play songs by other artists who loved JB as well and recorded some nice remakes. Artists like Steven Tyler & Aerosmith, Joss Stone and my latest studio group, the Sons of Saint Rocco, featuring Phil Granito, Angel Rissoff, Seth Glassman and yours truly. We recorded three James Brown tunes and you’ll hear them all. I think you’ll really enjoy this salute to James Brown, so join me for “Great Soul Performances” later this evening at 7PM EDT, 6PM CT, 5PM MT and 4PM PT. And don’t forget, if you want to hear the show again, beginning Monday you can click on the PODCAST link, or go direct to http://radiomaxmusic.com/podcasts.html for a listing of all the RadioMax programs available “On Demand.” So dig me later when we’ll “Get On Up” and get down on the “Good Foot” for James Brown & the Famous Flames along with Bobby Byrd and Maceo Parker with the JB’s on RadioMaxMusic.com.

Artist Countdown: Aerosmith Top 45 Hits 6pm ET @Aerosmith

aerosmithAerosmith is an American rock band, sometimes referred to as “The Bad Boys from Boston” and “America’s Greatest Rock and Roll Band.” Their style, which is rooted in blues-based hard rock, has come to also incorporate elements of pop, heavy metal, and rhythm and blues, and has inspired many subsequent rock artists. The band was formed in Boston, Massachusetts in 1970. Guitarist Joe Perry and bassist Tom Hamilton, originally in a band together called the Jam Band, met up with vocalist/harmonica player Steven Tyler, drummer Joey Kramer, and guitarist Ray Tabano, and formed Aerosmith. In 1971, Tabano was replaced by Brad Whitford, and the band began developing a following in Boston.

Aerosmith is the best-selling American rock band of all time, having sold more than 150 million albums worldwide,] including 70.2 million albums in the United States alone. With 25 gold albums, 18 platinum albums, and 12 multi-platinum albums, they hold the record for the most gold albums by an American group, the most total certifications by an American group, and are tied for the most multi-platinum albums by an American group. The band has scored 21 Top 40 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, nine number-one Mainstream Rock hits, four Grammy Awards, six American Music Awards, and ten MTV Video Music Awards. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001, and were included among both Rolling Stone’s and VH1’s lists of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time. As the band’s principal songwriters, Steven Tyler and Joe Perry received the ASCAP Founders Award and were inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2013. – Wikipedia
