A vinyl listening party covering the journey of the soundtrack for the civil rights and black power movements; from its roots in early-60s R&B and dominance of the mid-60s charts, to it’s social and political awakening at the dawn of the 70s and cultural relevance and musical influence throughout the remaining decade, and up to soul-inspired modern artists.
Playing LPs from popular artists like Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Sam Cooke, The Supremes, Curtis Mayfield, Isaac Hayes, and James Brown, to lesser known musicians like Jackie Shane, Booker T & the MGs, Funkadelic, Syl Johnson, and Gil-Scott Heron. And covering sub genres like Motown, the Toronto Sound, Psychedelic Soul, and Funk.
Brought to you by Second Broadcast (Senior member Scott Moore’s side hustle) on top-of-the-line B&O amplifier and speakers from the late 60s and an iconic Technics SL-1200 DJ turntable. Sit back, listen, maybe dance, and enjoy.
