SoulTrain was the creation of a now American icon, Don Cornelius. Don Cornelius, regrettably left us all this past week. He created an Afro-American version of Dick Clark’s American Bandstand, giving many young Afro-American artists their big break in the music business.
This weekend’s music thread is a tribute to Don, SoulTrain and the many artists that flourished after appearing on this landmark television show. Take your pick, Motown, R&B, Soul or Funk, or all of the above.
At the end of each show Don Cornelius would say goodnight with these words… “…and as always in parting, we wish you love, peace… and SOUL!”
