    I regret missing the Philly Soul countdown... some of my favorite songs.
    I just listened to the MLK themed countdown.
    Good stuff!

    I listened to the MLK themed countdown last year. It was very good. This Classic Soul Countdown is one of the most under-rated in the satellite spectrum in my opinion.

    Soul Town's SUPER Countdown
    Soul Town host Wanda Ramos takes a look at 1969 the year of Woodstock, the year that Joe Namath won a Super Bowl, and the Celtics and Laker's did battle, and the Godfather was a novel. The #1 song in the countdown is by Junior Walker.

    I wonder if it could be "What Does It Take (To Win Your Love)" ??

    Very possible. That song was once famously featured in the Aaron's song of the day thread. I love that song. :cool:

    In 1971, both Ali and Frazier had legitimate claims to the title of World Heavyweight Champion. In March they met at Madision Square Garden in NYC where Ali won a close fight. Nixon was in the White House, and cigarette ads were banned from TV. The songs that were the sound track of that time are featured with Kim Weston in The Motown spotlight.
