PRIDE and Batman
Here we get a pretty funky Gospel Brunch, including a pretty tremendous Rev. J.M. Gates sermon “Kinky Hair is No Disgrace” that has a whole lot of back & forth with his congration. Special thanks and appreciation to Kevin Nutt of “Sinner’s Crossroads” on WFMU for playing some of the songs & artists I “stole” for this show. If you dig funk, soul, and vocal quartet Gospel, I highly encourage you to check out Kevin’s show. I listen almost every week and there’s always something that I hear that I want to find and then share with you. You can hear it online at WFMU and via some podcast apps (I use PodcastAddict for Android and Sinner’s Crossroads is available through it).
After brunch is about an hour & a half of songs for Pride Month. I tried to find an assortment of songs, some protest, some love songs, some songs by lesbian/gay/trans/queer/gender fluid musicians, that sort of thing.
Of course when I heard that Adam West had died, I knew I wanted to play a few songs in his memory. I even found a song sung by Adam himself!
Finally, I played a few 2017 songs wrap up the show. I think the final song, “It’s Not Gonna Be Forever” by Dayme Arocena, is the third or fourth song that I’ve played from her 2017 album “Cubafonia.” If you couldn’t tell, I’m a big fan of the album. I love the mix of Cuba and New Orleans, and I think her voice is just grand.
This week’s “Son of a Preacher Man” performed by Tom Goss. I mentioned the video for the song during the show, check it out below.
