Sojourner's Place

old school friday...soul train  

Posted by SjP in

Oh Yeah! It's FRIDAY!!! And that means it's time for some old school jamming and par-taying in the blogosphere! This week's theme is "Soul Train".

The "Soul Train" hit the Chicago airwaves just one month before my freshman year of college on WCUI. It was our daily answer to American Bandstand. Don Cornelius - the Black Dick Clark - was always too sharp in the multi-color polyester, platform shoes, and big afro. When you' here this theme, you'd know that only love, peace, and sou was going to be happening for the next 30 minutes.

So for all you sojourners with Chi-town roots who actually owned an 8-track, I know you'll enjoy the original theme to the original "Soul Train".

8 sojourners hollin' back


You got me on this one. Hubby remembers this song; he played sax in a band back in the day.

Happy OSF.

You brought up 8-track tapes. I had a 8-track player in my first car ... a 1972 Chevy Nova!

Nice pick, going waaaayyyy back.
Aahh 8-tracks, those I remember well. I had a player and a very nice 8 track collection!

You did it again! I am amazed at your knowledge. I didn't know the theme. You are good. Happy OSF.

Very nice! I love a little education with my OSF!

But shut your mouth about 8-tracks--there are still albums that I remember where the tracks changed and there would be that pause. LOL

Ah, the memories! LOL
