Musicians Christopher Cruz (So Hideous) and Aaron Ford (founder of Lost Colony Music) join Mike in the studio and discuss racism, basketball and music. We play songs by Parliament, Solange, Shalamar and more.
For all the lonely hearts and broken folks out there, here's an episode of breakup songs, cheating songs, and songs that celebrate the end of a relationship. Along with '80s classics by Kool & The Gang, DeBarge and Millie Jackson, we include more recent songs by Amy Winehouse, Justin Timberlake and Ceelo Green.
The latest episode of the Jheri Curl Chronicles pays tribute to soul, funk and dance classics that peaked somewhere between #41 and #50 on the pop chart, and later went on to become classics. Songs are included by Shalamar, Freddie Jackson, Five Star, Jodeci, and more.
With Mike Joseph indisposed, "The Jheri Curl Chronicles" is taken over by the team from "It's All Nice On Ice" (Sundays on Radio Free Brooklyn at 10 PM). A mix of old and new tunes, the show features music from Michael Jackson, The Weeknd, and more.
The Jheri Curl Chronicles flips a previous theme on its ear. An older episode played rock-oriented songs by R&B and funk artists. This one gives examples of R&B and dance songs by traditionally rock artists. '80s hits by Rod Stewart, Peter Gabriel, Pat Benatar, Phil Collins and more are included in this mix.
Our special guest for this episode is songwriter/producer Michael Goldwasser. Goldwasser has produced records for a variety of acts including the Easy Star All-Stars, and he currently performs as R&B act Goldswagger. As a lover of '80s R&B, he is perfect for this show, which features his selections by Young and Company, The Jacksons, Indeep and New Edition, among others.
The JCC radio show does a bit of a stylistic turn for this episode, which co-stars singer and songwriter Julian Velard. Julian's playlist contains yacht rock favorites from typical JCC artists like DeBarge, Brenda Russell and Aretha Franklin, but also contains music from Bill Champlin (later of Chicago) and Dan Fogelberg as well as newer songs by Mac DeMarco and John Mayer.
Episode 59 of the Jheri Curl Chronicles pays tribute to some of the fantastic divas to grace soul, dance and rap music during the '80s and early '90s. This set features songs by Whitney Houston, Anita Baker, Taylor Dayne, Salt 'n Pepa, Loleatta Holloway, Mariah Carey and many more.
