Soul Train

Image via Wikipedia. The "Soul Train" stopped in its tracks a long time ago (with no attempts to revive it that I know of), and now the train's captain has gone, too.

Hard to get happy after reading this, regardless of whatever aspersions people may have cast on the poor 75 year-old guy. He’s still the founder and former host of the TV class “Soul Train.”

Nothing like it before or after, (which is pathetic when you consider the number of black millionaires and billionaires and the success of similar shows for predominantly white audiences like “X Factor“), the program broke barriers and introduced the world to such greats as James Brown and Aretha Franklin.

No snappy jokes for this, just a depressing little note.
