When we get together this evening for “Great Soul Performances” I’ll be saluting the city of Memphis, Tennessee, with many of the artists from Stax and Hi Records. In addition, you’ll hear recollections and the sounds of my former Memphis Radio Station; the Big 1070 Soul, WDIA. On the playlist will be: Booker T. & the MGs, Rufus Thomas, Carla Thomas, Sam & Dave, Ann Peebles, the Soul Children, Otis Redding, Al Green, Ollie & the Nightingales, Isaac Hayes, the Temprees, the Staple Singers, Johnnie Taylor and more. It begins at 7PM ET, then immediately following on “Great Soul Performances 2: The 80s” we’ll be presenting music from: Earth, Wind & Fire, Barry White, Madonna, Tone Loc, Jocko Henderson, the Main Ingredient, Yarbrough & Peoples, Ben E. King, New Edition, the Four Tops, Aretha Franklin, Johnny Mathis and several others. I thinks it’s going to be a good evening for music and memories as we spotlight the music of Memphis and the 50,000 watt Soul Giant, WDIA and fabulous 80s sounds on “Great Soul Performances” and “Great Soul Performances 2:The 80s,” on the “Home Of The Hits,” RadioMaxMusic.Com.
On this very cold Monday, I hope I can warm you up later this evening on “Great Soul Performances” with music from: Earth, Wind & Fire, Walter Jackson, Jackie Wilson, Gladys Knight & the Pips, the Dramatics, Al Green, the Soul Children, Baby Washington, Dr. Buzzard’s Original Savannah Band, Joss Stone, Clyde McPhatter, the Four Tops, Marvin Gaye (live in concert) and more. We kick it off at 7PM ET, 6PM CT, 5PM MT and 4PM PT. We’re at the home of the “Greatest Hits of the 60s, 70s & 80s,” with “Great Soul Performances” later on RadioMaxMusic.Com.
Coming up shortly on “Great Soul Performances” this evening, we are going to be music intensive. It’s the post election season so I’ll be playing many “cut in” or “break in” songs that will reflect what was going on in the country (with tongue planted firmly in cheek) during “Convention ’72,” “Convention ’76,” “Election 2012” and others, plus songs about the economy and the hard times we were experiencing the early and mid 1970s. We will be hearing from: Dickie Goodman, the Delegates, Enoch Hawthorne Gregory; the “Dixie Drifter” and yours truly with our “cut in” record, plus the Presidents, the Beatles, Jackie Wilson, Johnnie Taylor, the Soul Children, Tower of Power, Black Ivory, Mel & Tim, Jermaine Jackson, Otis Redding, the Spinners; “live in concert” and more. Check us out at 7PM ET, 6PM CT, 5PM MT & 4PM PT. “Great Soul Performances” in just a few at the “Home Of The Hits,” RadioMaxMusic.Com.
