My buddy Michael Jay of “New Odyssey” out of Chicago called and asked me if I knew what day it is. I said, “what do you mean Mike.” He said, “it’s “Hump Day, it’s Wednesday.” So I guess that means it’s time for “Great Soul Performances 2: The 80s” this evening, where I’ll be playing music from: Luther Vandross, Al Jarreau, U.S.A.

Monday after Easter Sunday, and that means the beginning of “Beach Music” season. For the uninitiated, the uninformed, “Beach Music” is extremely popular in the Carolinas, as far north as Virginia and as far south as northern Florida. Beach Music has nothing to do with surf music, the Beach Boys or southern California. What it is, is mostly R&B music that has a beat that’s great for doing a dance called the “Shag.” Trust me, “There Ain’t Nothing Like Shagging.” In my day up north in New York City, we called it the “swing,” which was the descendant of the “jitterbug.” So this evening on “Great Soul Performances” it will be all “Beach Music.” We’ll be hearing music from: General Norman Johnson & the Chairmen of the Board, the Embers, selected tracks from my life long friend and brother, Eugene Pitt from the CD we produced in 2009, “Eugene Pitt Steps Out In Front: I Love Beach Music,” the Falcons, the Manhattans, Jimmy Ricks & the Ravens, the Tymes, Marvin Gaye, Richard “Dimples” Fields, the Trammps, Angel Rissoff, the Band of Oz, the studio group I sing with that includes Phil Granito, Seth Glassman & Angel Rissoff called, the Sons of Saint Rocco, the Clovers; recorded “live” at the Third Annual Beach Music Awards Show, and many, many, many more. Shagging begins at 7PM ET, 6PM CT, 5PM MT and 4PM PT. I’m sure after tonight you’ll want to hear this show again, and you can, by going to: http://radiomaxmusic.com/gsplisten.html. Get ready for a partying, dancing, good time this evening with “Great Soul Performances” at “Shag Central,” the home of “Beach Music” on RadioMaxMusic.Com.
This evening on “Great Soul Performances;” on this first day of Spring, we’ll be hearing from: Edwin Starr, Don Gardner & Dee Dee Ford, Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes, the Intruders, Margie Joseph & Blue Magic, Walter Jackson, Tavares, Cliff Perkins & Soul Generation, the Temptations, the Chairmen of the Board, Denise LaSalle; “live in concert,” and more. We get underway at 7PM ET, 6PM CT, 5PM MT and 4PM PT. By going to the link: http://radiomaxmusic.com/gsplisten.html, beginning Tuesday, you can listen to this show at your heart’s desire, as often as you’d like until the new “G.S.P.” airs next Monday. So please join me later for “Great Soul Performances” at the home of the hits, RadioMaxMusic.Com. BTW, next Monday we will usher in “Beach Music Season” with nothing but fantastic and classic Beach Music, and hopefully the weather will be a lot warmer, because after all, it is officially Spring, but in the mean-time and the in-between time, I’ve “Gone Fishing.” See Ya Later, ‘Gator!
