Today’s show is dedicated to the memory of one of our loyal listeners, Ms. Tremaine Simon.
For today’s show, I had the utmost privilege of interviewing Grammy and Academy Award-Winning, Dr. Mable John. Dr. John was the first lady to be signed to Tamla (Motown) Records and is best known for her hit, “Your Good Thing (is About to End) on Stax Records which peaked at #6 on the R&B Charts in 1966. She also was a Raelette behind Ray Charles for several years.
During the interview, Dr. John shared stories about her experiences with her brother, the late Little Willie John, Tamla (Motown) Records, Stax Records, Ray Charles and much more. Click on the link above to listen to the show in its entirety.
