Monday 7pm: Great Soul Performances Northern Soul Special with Bobby Jay

gsp-nssThis evening, “Great Soul Performances” is dedicated to my friend from the United Kingdom, Kev Roberts. Kev is the man who turned me on to “Northern Soul.” He is also an author, who wrote the definitive book; “The Northern Soul Top 500,” as well as releasing several volumes of Northern Soul CDs. (Check them out on Amazon.Com) After the demise of the original WCBS-FM oldies format in New York City on June 3, 2005, Kev approached Bob Shannon and myself, as well as one of our former air personalities, Dick Heatherton about joining a new satellite radio station he was starting up in London to be called “VIP Radio.”

We jumped at the opportunity. “Great Soul Performances” got its start on VIP Radio. So, to salute all my friends and fans from the UK and especially Kev Roberts, it will be all “Northern Soul” tonight. Music will be coming from artists like: Jackie Wilson, Gloria Jones, Major Lance, the Supremes, Little Anthony & the Imperials, Tommy Hunt, the Spinners, Dee Dee Sharp, the Platters, Timothy Wilson, the Contours, Frankie Valli, Edwin Starr, Ike & Tina Turner and so many others.

Once again, we need music in our lives, in our ears, and in our hearts, to help blunt the tragedy of yesterday, June 12th, the day of the worst mass shooting in American history. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of those who lost their lives and to those who are fighting for their lives in the hospital, and all the citizens of the City of Orlando and the State of Florida. Their pain and their suffering, is our pain and suffering.

We’ll try and have some fun beginning at 7PM ET, 6PM CT, 5PM MT & 4PM PT. I hope you’ll be listening Kev Roberts. I’ll try and get it right. “Northern Soul” this evening at the home of the “Greatest Hits of the 60s, 70s, & 80s,” RadioMaxMusic.Com.

Monday 7pm: Great Soul Performances with Bobby Jay

bjmagspI’m really feeling my mortality today. Muhammad Ali’s passing on Friday, brings home the fact that my generation is beginning to leave the stage of life in increasing numbers. Ali was one of the most iconic figures of the 20th century, who’s talent both in and out of the boxing ring will never be matched. He could act, light on his feet; he was quite a dancer, he was an original rapper, he was a poet; and boy did he know it, and he even fancied himself a singer. So this evening on “Great Soul Performances,” we are going to salute and pay tribute to “The Greatest,” Muhammad Ali. You will hear Ali in his own words, which will be a nostalgic remembrance for those of us who grew up with him, and for those much younger people who weren’t blessed to have those memories, I think it will be an eye-opening (or is it, ear-opening) experience. You’ll also hear music from the likes of: Lou Rawls, the Supremes, Van Morrison, Jimmy Castor, the Temptations, Joe Bataan, Bobby Byrd, the Desires, the Emotions, Dyke & the Blazers and others. Our tribute begins at 7PM ET, 6PM CT, 5PM MT & 4PM PT. Muhammad Ali will forever be “The Greatest Of All Time!” Join me and let’s celebrate his life and career this evening on “Great Soul Performances” at the home of the “Greatest Hits of The 60s, 70s, and 80s,” RadioMaxMusic.Com.

Feature Artist: Supremes (Singles) 6pm ET

Supremes60sThe Supremes were an American female singing group and the premier act of Motown Records during the 1960s. Founded as the Primettes in Detroit, Michigan, in 1959, the Supremes were the most commercially successful of Motown’s acts and are, to date, America’s most successful vocal group with 12 number one singles on the Billboard Hot 100. Most of these hits were written and produced by Motown’s main songwriting and production team, Holland–Dozier–Holland. At their peak in the mid-1960s, the Supremes rivaled the Beatles in worldwide popularity, and their success made it possible for future African American R&B and soul musicians to find mainstream success.

Founding members Florence Ballard, Mary Wilson, Diana Ross, and Betty McGlown, all from the Brewster-Douglass public housing project in Detroit,[4] formed the Primettes as the sister act to the Primes (with Paul Williams and Eddie Kendricks, who went on to form the Temptations). Barbara Martin replaced McGlown in 1960, and the group signed with Motown the following year as the Supremes. Martin left the act in early 1962, and Ross, Ballard, and Wilson carried on as a trio.

During the mid-1960s, the Supremes achieved mainstream success with Ross as lead singer. In 1967, Motown president Berry Gordy renamed the group Diana Ross & the Supremes, and replaced Ballard with Cindy Birdsong. Ross left to pursue a solo career in 1970 and was replaced by Jean Terrell, at which point the group’s name reverted to the Supremes. After 1972, the lineup changed more frequently; Lynda Laurence, Scherrie Payne, and Susaye Greene all became members of the group during the mid-1970s. The Supremes disbanded in 1977 after 18 years. – Wikipedia
