One of the most popular songs that artist Bryant “Luther” Roberts was known for singing during his days with the band Little Benny & The Masters was the Al Jarreau hit “Tell Me What I Gotta Do.” So watching this video clip of him performing and directing this tribute in the same format and style that Benny directed it, is a real pleasure to see.
Hot new single from artist Carolyn Malachi that features collaboration with Michelle Blackwell. This single brings a rhythmical structure of high powered and energetic flavor that is sure to have you bouncing to this!

There was a time (during the 1960’s – 1990’s) when there were over 150 BOBs (Black owned Broadcasters) operating radio stations around the US. This also reflected a time when radio in the Black community was put in place to help uplift people. The civil rights movement was largely fueled by black radio stations in many of the cities and those “morally driven” stations helped to promote the cause were at that time black owned.
Especially here in the Washington, D.C., area during the 70s and 80s era. With stations such as WOL 1450 (nick named The soul of the city), we had the comfort of community voiced such as Petey Greene, Joe Madison, Cathy Hughes and Bernie McCain, who placed focus and attention to our own individual narratives. While the jocks such as Moonman Bacote, Soul Papa, Nighthawk and Konan spinned our soundtracks. Whatever was going on within our culture and community, those were the voices we tuned in to stay informed and updated. They represented the people and voices of us all. If you wanted to get information out about an issue or event, your first stop was always the local black radio station. Because Black radio was the drumbeat of the community.
News Channel 8 on Thursday followed by a live performance on News Channel 9 on Friday was just the beginning of an eventful, star studded, surprise filled 50th birthday weekend for Steven Herrion aka Buggs of the Junkyard Band.
On Saturday, a birthday concert at a packed Howard Theater included performances by the Vybe Band and the Junkyard Band, also including special performances by James Funk, Sugar Bear, Big G, Weensey and violinist Chelsey Green.
As if the gift of a championship belt and trophy, radio shout outs and inspirational stories from the many fans, friends and music industry artists weren’t enough to wrap up the celebrations, a birthday cypher and tribute video was released by the Young Junksters on Monday, March 14. Arranged and produced by Ms. Maiah of the N-Crowd, Kato Hammond of TMOTTGoGo and Ms. Chuk of S.O.S., the cypher jacks the Junkyard classic John Wayne in a tribute to “Daddy” aka “Uncle Buggs” aka “Brownie”.
