This third WHM 2017 episode features women of the iconic Chess and Atlantic Records labels, including Aretha Franklin and Etta James. Also, we pay tribute to the great Tommy LiPuma, whose production work launched George Benson to mega-fame; Maxx Kidd, who spearheaded the production efforts for DC Go-Go artists like Chuck Brown, Trouble Funk and E.U.; and Robert "P-Nut" Johnson, a longtime P-Funk member.
I interview Raul Midon, whose 2017 CD "Bad Ass & Blind" hits the shelves this month, and we listened to its first single.
There's new music from Ronald Bruner, Jr., Cameron Graves, Neo Soul Acid Collective and Brother Ali.
