Artist of the Month: SOUL BROTHER ICHIBAN

This month, Rock 'n' Soul Ichiban delves into the unparalleled career of the King of 45s, the DJ's best friend, the man who taught the world to dance . . . with hits like: SUDS! HOT! SUPER SLICK . . .  SUPER BAD!  MONEY WON'T CHANGE YOU!  CHONNIE ON CHON!  AND I DO JUST WHAT I WANT!  TELL ME THAT YOU LOVE ME!  Ladies and Gentlemen, Mr. Licking Stick, Brother Rapp Rapp himself . . . the hardest rocking man in history . . . James Brown!

We open our ceremonies with this amazing choral tribute to the king, the king of soul, performed by a group of Rochester, New York elementary school students, led by their teacher Nancy Dupree on an album recorded for Smithsonian-Folkways called Ghetto Reality

Give the poor little shoe shine boy some!

Make sure your bad self joins us for all of JB's birth month for rare tracks, videos & photos, an interview with RJ Smith, author of The One, the newly published Brown biography, and much more.
