DJ Graybeard asked me to fill in for him this week, and I'll do my best to fill his extra-large shoes with two hours of great black music — maybe not ancient to the future, but at least from 1960 to today. This is a real busman's holiday for me — I'll get to play all kinds of music I love that doesn't fit into the format of my own show, Global A Go-Go (Friday 5-7 PM), plus a few things that do fit.
You'll hear from all kinds of folks: Arthur Lee & Love, Ronald Shannon Jackson & The Decoding Society, Howlin' Wolf, Andy Palacio, Ishmael Reed, Soul Messengers (pictured above, a band of Black Hebrew Israelites from Chicago via Liberia), Alton Ellis, Etta James, and many more.
