Sorry, been once again remiss on posting, but... here I am. Today's show will be the last of the features on the Casanovas, the Miracles, and Fats Domino. It will also feature the debut of Terry Johnson's (Flamingos, Whispers) new single (a remake of Let's Be Lovers Again... the song he did on Atco with Nate Nelson as the Starglows) and, unfortunately, another tribute.. this time to Eugene Record, the wonderful falsetto lead and producer of the Chi Lites.

A big shout out of thanks Jack Maxwell for filling in last week. He always does a great job.

Below are the playlists for July. Again, for some reason, the tape to the July 9 show didn't record, so there may be an inaccuracy or two in the listing. And of course, the July 16 show was a double shift.... glad to see that Johnny B is back in good health and going at it again.

Next week we begin August's features: The Temptations, The Four Buddies, and Dinah Washington.

Because of a lightning storm last Friday night, WRDV's transmitter was down until Saturday afternoon.... therefore the show was not heard over the air last Saturday morning. The webcast, however, was unaffected.

Since the in-studio recording device pulls its input from the transmitted signal, I was not able to tape the show.... so the playlist below reflects what I BELIEVE was actually played. If anyone noticed a difference, please let me know and I'll be happy to revise it. (soundofthecity@hotmail.com).
