Playing tracks by
George Benson, Ta-Ku, Larry Gus, La Big Vic, Krystal Klear and more.
Original Airdate: 21 January 2013
So I've been listening to way-too-much George Benson vinyl lately, thus the first half of today's show is a direct result of that current vice. It's filled with Quiet Storm-funk, soulful electronics, and plenty of 808s--featured artists include the ridiculously prolific Ta-ku, Amalia (from her new release on Tokyo Dawn), DâM-FunK &, obviously, George Benson.
The second hour gets more serious (but just as funky, if not more so), as it features our annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day mix (which fell on January 21st in the US). This hour is filled with (mostly) classic soul and jazz, though the subject matter is all civil rights, freedom and revolution.
