Going over some of the old playlists, I’ve noticed an alarming lack of James Brown. Only a handful JB tunes have ever been played on What Planet Is This?!. Mr. Brown died on the 25th of December back in 2006 and the man deserves more credit than he gets these days.
I remember asking music student this past summer (I work at band camp every year – nerdy, I know) if she’d ever heard of James Brown.
“Who?” She replied.
‘You know: I Feel Good duh-nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh.’
What?! How is this possible? Good god, y’all!
Every Tuesday, for the month of December, I will be playing at least one James Brown tune!
In other news, be sure to tune in tomorrow night an hour early. Starting at 7:00 PM, tomorrow night, there will be a special collaboration between Mouth Radio (which typically runs from 7-8, Tuesday nights) and What Planet Is This?!. We’ve each lined up a special playlist for tonight and have a few musical bones to pick. Be sure to catch it!
