TSSWYEP210612 Mod Squad's and Purple Rain's CW III, new Rasheed Ali, '71's Harlem River Drive

WYEP's edition of The Soul Show remembered Clarence Williams III, aka the counterculture cop Linc Hayes on The Mod Squad ('68-'73). Later he was Prince's tormented dad in Purple Rain. The title track weaves the memories of the two together, with a Prince birthday this week.

Rasheed Ali's final(?) installment of the '1968' series just dropped. It's called 'Hindsight is 20/20.' Another hard-funk single from Dumpstaphunk's latest album was also featured. For the ongoing fiftieth-anniversary lookbacks of this year, Eddie Palmieri's 'Harlem River Drive' masterpiece was spotlighted. The newest music from Rhiannon Giddens, George Benson and Cameron Graves was on tap.
