Martin Luther King Tribute Radio Show

Recommended Posts

I was supposed to do an interview today on my radio show but the guys had an emergency and had to reschedule. Instead, I did an all socially conscious, Black Power themed show in honor of both Martin Luther King Day as well as Barack Obama's inauguration (Barack also happens to live a few blocks from the radio station). I started the show off with a few late-60s political DJ "rap" records. Anyways, you can listen to the show at:

Hi Bob!

Great show, or I should say great shows in the plural, because I´ve listened to both and enjoyed them immensely!

However, the first link was broken, because of a space between the "o" and the "m" in "com", so I had to retype it.

Out of all the brilliant tunes played I think John Brothers´ "Try to Walk a Mile" is actually my #1 favourite, a great

tune written and produced by Bunny Sigler, when a record bears his signature it is bound to be soulful!

Best regards

Mel

thanks a lot for the feedback, sorry about the broken link, I think it was a copy/paste problem. Do you know anything about the john brothers (besides that they were probably from philly due to Bunny Sigler's involvement)? Thanks.

Some very interesting info here:

I´ve been in contact with "Dennis" before, he has loads of rare records in his collection.

Keith John, one of the John Brothers has been touring with Stevie Wonder for many years.

When Stevie did a show in Stocholm some five years ago I was there and had the pleaure of

seeing and hearing Keith John perform live on stage. Also have one late-80´s solo recording

by Keith John, he is a great singer.

Somehow when Sigler is the songwriter/producer of a record the vocals are normally very

soulful and melismatic, maybe because the lead singers try to emulate the way Bunny

vocalled them on his demo versions.

Regards,

Mel
