Good Morning, Ungovernables! On this day in 1954 (I was a little over 2 months old at the time), the Billboard magazine headline read:
“Teenagers Demand Music With a Beat — Spur Rhythm & Blues”
Throughout the sixties, R & B became the inspiration for many, many of the bands we feature here on #BecomeUngovernable Radio, including both The Beatles and The Stones.
Here’s your R & B line-up:
1:00 p.m. Sweet Soul Music 1966: Various Artists
Including The Isley Brothers, The Supremes, Lorraine Ellison, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, and Wicked Wilson Pickett
6:00 p.m. Sweet Soul Music 1965: Various Artists
Including Otis Redding, Solomon Burke, Fontella Bass, The Supremes, Marvin Gaye, and James Brown (the hardest working man in rock & roll)
Tune us in and pay homage to those who helped start this thing.
