Below is the playlist for the August 13 show.

I left out a song from the August 6 playlist... "Hey Good Lookin" by Dinah Washington And The Ravens, which I played between "If You Don't Know Me By Now" (Jean Carne With The Temptations) and "My Blue Heaven" (Delta Rhythm Boys). I'd left it out because I didn't actully have it, but Johnny Barbata offered it to me for the show... I played it but never added it to the list.

Hope you all had a chance to catch our friend Garnet Mimms on David April's Gospel Train show this past Tuesday night. Garnet previewed a new CD, talked about his gospel career, and there was a surprise call-in by Little Joe Cook from Boston. One of Garnet's first gigs after moving to Philly at age 18 was in Little Joe's Evening Star Quartet.

See you Saturday... 8 AM to Noon, the first two hours on the R and B shop for Johnny.

Here's the playlist for July 30. I want to thank Gerry Tucker from High Point, NC for calling and talking about his experience interviewing the late Chester Mayfield, lead singer of the Casanovas, who passed away within the last year. Gerry was kind enough to send me emails with the details on the Casanovas time with Apollo Records, as well as the interview with Chester Mayfield.

Hope you all liked "Let's Be Lovers", the new recording from Terry Johnson. If you'd like to know how to pick up a copy of his CD when it is released, please let me know at Soundofthecity@hotmail.com.
