@BlismBlasm and Phillippe, right before I started listening to WHUR, I was listening to soul/funk/r&b AM radio but can't recall the station in DC.

Thanks Ben Cornish
Avatar 5:03am Dances with Moomins:

I agree Malcolm. Mom gave me the name, 67 years ago in East Orange General....So FMU & I share being born in E.O.
Used to listen to FMU on the transistor radio back in the late 60s, when it was Uppsala College's radio station. Now the computer is my only choice, this is a precious sanctuary. Cheers!
  5:04am Donna:

hello Ben in London, RIP Millie Small

@BlismBlasm and Phillippe, Do you remember those amazing soul/funk Human Kindness Day concerts at the Washington Monument by any chance? I went to the one in 1975.

enjoying riding the ghost ship into the dawn with the master guidance of the legendary DJ TT
Avatar 5:29am BlismBlasm:

@SC Sadly I wasn't around til a bit later, and 1975 was the last one. Looks like they ran from '72 to '75 and was ended due to crime and violence.
  5:29am DJ Time Traveler:

Thanks Stillwell Coney Islander
  5:31am Donna:

Nice Creative Funk song...hello all time travelers in the zone
  5:32am DJ Time Traveler:

G'night DJTT stay well so glad you're here.
Blessed be your travels in time.
  5:34am SC:

@BlismBlasm Ah didn't realize that...but definitely remember the violence. When did you move there?
Avatar 5:35am BlismBlasm:

Born in 1977, raised in Silver Spring.
  5:37am SC:

Cool! I lived in Silver Spring briefly but before you were born. Nice to meet you.
Avatar 5:37am BlismBlasm:

You too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:37am Phillippe Bastille:

@sc I did not attend, was just a tad young back then. Didn't graduate HS until '75
  5:42am Toothgrinder Tom:

I’m from the DC area but never heard of ‘Human Kindness Day.’
  5:43am DJ Time Traveler:

Prays for John Bo Sharpe of HALO in the Hospital
  5:43am SC:

I was young then as well...Phillippe, you're actually a little older than me! I was only in jr. high school when I went to that concert with my friend...we had to have her friend's father chaperone us. I remember Stevie Wonder and Graham Central Station played. More than made up for the violence! Black Heat played too, but don't remember them. Nice to meet you Phillippe and Tom.
  5:43am DJ Time Traveler:

Thanks Toothgrinder Tom
  5:44am DJ Time Traveler:

Happy Mother’s Day to you Donna.....
  5:45am Donna:

Thank you DJ TT. This has been a very special show. Hope you have a great week :)
Avatar 5:48am BlismBlasm:

@SC: That's a great lineup! '75 had a crowd of 125,000. Black Heat was out of DC right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52am Jim the Poet:

Great show T T
  5:53am Donna:

@BlismBlasm Yeah! They were a DC band, but don't know much about them.
Avatar 5:54am BlismBlasm:

Thanks Donna!
  5:54am SC:

Yeah, they were a DC band and I think they were an early go-go band.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57am Ken From Hyde Park:

Thanks for another overnight journey, DJTT. Take care, everybody.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:00am Fuzzy:

Thanks DJTT!
Avatar 6:00am BlismBlasm:

@SC: Ah yes... That's why their sound has such a range of ingredients. Always struck me like a cross between The Soul Searchers, WAR, The Meters, with a high energy Cymande and a little Funkadelic on the side.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:00am Fuzzy:

Thanks studio skeletons!
