After not being around for a while, it took a while to get over this hump of creating one that would appeal to the masses. I’m holding a positive light on this podcast.  It pays homage to those who are gone but not forgotten, in particular Vesta and Belitta Woods from Brainstorm. Both were amazing vocalists who were, in my opinion, under-appreciated.  I’ll continue to feature more tracks from those two in upcoming ‘casts.

Favorites from Donald Byrd (with a little help from the Mizell Brothers), Vanessa Williams (and yes, that is Babyface’s vocals AND acoustic guitar you hear on this fantastic track),  Mac Band, Cameo,  and Tony! Toni! Tone are featured.  In addition, classics from Jackson 5 and The Sylveers precede one of my many favorite tracks from Brainstorm, the aptly titled Brand New Day.    Have requests?
