JRoxx Radio? Get the Funk Outta Here!
Posted by jhochstat on July 20, 2008
That’s right folks, starting this Wednesday July 23rd, yours truly JRoxx will be hosting a weekly show on Radio Johnson called Get the Funk Outta Here! The show will air every Wednesday from 3-6 PM EST. The first week’s show will feature the music of Chuck Brown & Trouble Funk, the undisputed masters of Washington DC’s own music form, GoGo music.
Three albums will be played in the following order, all from original CD’s:
Trouble Funk – Drop The Bomb Originally Produced By Sylvia Robinson and released on Sugarhill Records in 1982, re-released by Uk’s Sequel Records on CD in 1993.
Chuck Brown & The Soul Searchers – Any Other Way To Go? Killer live album released on Rhythm Attack Records in 1987 showcasing Chuck Brown & The Soul Searchers in peak form.
Trouble Funk – Early Singles Originally released in 1981 and re-released on Rick Rubin’s Infinite Zero Records on CD in 1997.This is what Musician Magazine had to say about this release: Trouble Funk’s early singles a certified treasure. A godsend from the powers that be. It is a compilation of early T. Funk singles which you cannot find otherwise even though these are groundbreaking recordings of the DC go-go scene. A steady percussive drive locks together conga, hand instruments and trops to chanted to vocals, making a dance machine that rolls along as steady as a heartbeat
Each week I will be digging deep into my vast musical archive to put forth a show spotlighting different aspects of Funk, Soul, some Jazz and other music forms. Requests are always welcome…
Tune in and check the show out, it will be fun! http://www.radiojohnson.net/
