soul train type show feat Kenny Smith as host

Cincinnati Enquirer‘s May 11, 1972 

“WKRC-TV and General-American Productions will co-operate in an ambitious project to produce an hour-long black music-dance show for youth, Soul Street, beginning with the shooting of a pilot Sunday.  Intentions are to syndicate it.  The host will be Kenny Smith, Kennedy Heights, well-known local composer-singer.  Two Channel 9 staffers, Jim (Oscar) Welch and Ron De-Morales, will serve as producer and director, respectively, on a free-lance basis.  Bob Lanier, GAP vice-president/general manager, will be executive producer.  Pilot guests include the Four Tops, Funkadelic, Bill Doggett and Tommy Sears.  James Brown has agreed to co-host every fifth show, starting with the second, Lanier said.  Guests for succeeding shows include Gladys Knight and the Pips, Eighth Day, Chase, Carla Thomas, Soul Children, Major Lance, Emotions and Chi-Lites.  Kenny Smith’s GAR single, ‘Lord, What’s Happening to Your People?’ is scoring well.  He penned The Platters’ ‘Think Before You Walk Away.'”
