The Rhythm Review

Saturday, December 02, 2006

I only discovered the Rhythm Review in the last year, and I curse myself for all the years I didn’t know about it. The Rhythm Review is Felix Hernandez’s a four hour radio program that airs on Saturdays on 88.3 WBGO-FM 10am - 2pm and then on Sundays on 98.7 KISS-FM 12pm - 4pm in the New York area. It’s rhythm and blues at its best. Here’s a description from Current.org (its more than 10 years old, but it’s still accurate):
His rhythm-and-blues broadcast from WGBO, Newark. This is no stale oldies show; it's a chance to hear the classic soul music otherwise neglected both by public and commercial radio. It's Edwin Starr, Jackie Wilson, Archie Bell and the Drells, and the Emperors. It's Stevie Wonder's first recording, the original versions of "Satisfaction," and two versions of "Since I Fell for You" by Fontella Bass and Roy Hamilton.
If you’re in the New York/New Jersey are tune in. I promise Felix will make your afternoon. He makes me smile every time I tune in, and the show gives me an excuse to stay in my apartment lazing about.
