Welcome to this special KING DAY edition of the Soul-Patrol Newsletter.

Scroll down, read the articles and feel free to share them with your friends, family and most importantly with your children.

    2. 60's Diversity In Radio/The Murder Of Martin Luther King  

    Soul/Funk and Civil Rights

    I remember the day Dr. King was murdered all too well.
    I was in the 7th grade.
    The day after the assassination there was a riot at my school. All of the white kids (including Howard Stern, in an incident he constantly refers to on his radio show) got azz whuppins that day. At that time the school was about 40 percent white.

    By next fall the school was 95 percent Black...

    "Tighten Up" - Archie Bell and the Drells, Cowboys To Girls" - Intruders, "I Got The Feeling" - James Brown, "Licking Stick" - James Brown, "Sing a Simple Song" - Sly and the Family Stone, "It's A Beautiful Morning" - Rascals, were among the songs playing on my "box" (a long forgotten electrical device consisting of a multi speed rotating platter, needle, tone arm, cartridge some gears/fan belts and a spindle, mounted inside of a wooden

    In those days my radio dial was tuned to WWRL-AM 1600 , WLIB-AM 1190, WABC-AM
    770, WMCA-AM 570, WBAI-FM 95.5 and a once/week "specialty show" on Long Island's WBAB-FM Sunday nights called "Stereo Soul", featuring Soul-Patroller Kenny Webb!

    That's right folks...
    Our own Ken "Spider" Webb, probably had the very first, regularly scheduled Soul Music radio show on the FM dial in NYC....He was ahead of his time then, and continues to be so today!

    I was already a "radio junkie" and my choice in stations reflected that. by this point I had also become radicalized in my thinking.

    A big part of my radio listening also included WBAI - FM 99.5
    On WBAI I would listen to Bob Fass in the mornings where one of the features was the controversial "War Report", a broadcast where the government's daily casualty counts coming out of Vietnam would be challenged and discussed. I listened to Julius Lester a Black man, who was an award winning children's book author, who would also challenge the "status quo" with his daily ramblings on the war, interracial marriage and Black/Jewish relationships in NYC. I listened to Steve Post (who is still on the air on WNYC AM) who I thought was an amazing broadcaster, he was sort of like a modern day Will Rogers, who would spin amazing yarns of daily life in NYC in between long and boring interludes of Classical music. Controversial figures like Abbie Hoffman, Paul Krassner, Jerry Rubin, Bobby Seale, Tom Hayden and others would also show up on the station from time to time, discussing their latest activities. And WBAI also played music. New releases from people like Hendrix, Dylan, CSN, etc would get prominently featured and many times the artists also appeared in the studio live, often joining in on the discussion of the issues of the day in addition to promoting their music!
    That's right, the WBAI of 1968 was really the beginning of "free form" FM radio, a concept that was later commercialized, first on WOR-FM and then later with more commercial success on WNEW-FM.

    So what does this all have to do with the assassination of MLK in 1968?
    Seems to me that it has more to do with the radio listening habits of a 7th grade little
    Black boy in 1968, doesn't it?

    Or does it????

    The philosophies of MLK were such that a little Black boy in the 7th grade should was actually encouraged to have these kinds of diverse radio listening habits and not feel like he was "acting white" (as he would be accused of in today's environment).

    It is the absence of this kind of "tolerance" for true diversity that in my opinion has gone a long way towards ruining this country. The day MLK was shot, is the day when this country started down it's long and destructive path we are still on, towards totalitarianism & fascism, where diversity of thought and opinion are actually discouraged.

    Thanks for helping me to remember that today...

    3. Editorial: King Industrial Complex

    Martin Luther King Jr Today (Jan. 15) is of course Martin Luther King, Jr. 's actual Birthday. As usual, I'm not REAL sure how I'm to recognize it anymore. The reason is in the subject line. The KING INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX.

    Most people these days have a concoction of their King variation.Whether it's his family, co-horts, enemies, and bandits. Somebody, somewhere, is peddling King for aims of profit rather than his works to profit America as a whole. This has been an annual occurrence over the last 35 years. And I have just about damn near given up paying homage anymore. Start with...

    Family :(or in Sopranoesque speak THE family) selling his image and charging a fee only the Sultan of Brunei can pay with a smile to use and print his words of wisdom. Be it "The Dream" speech (funny how the opening with "Insufficient Funds" gets left out) or any other related item, They have exploited his name and works to satisfy their own pockets. Sure there's the King Center for (last we heard) Non Violent Social Change. But they're just repeating the S.O.S about essentially.... NOTHING!

    I know the Center is basicly a monument, but they do nothing to engage Atlanta neighborhoods, that surround it,into how they can SHARE the dream by taking an active interest in what goes on around them. Instead, we get these P.O.P U.P (Photo Opping Phony Uppity People) charades for dollars to the family.

    Co-horts : We know there are those persons, who marched along side King, selling their own agenda of him. Oh, how we could name enough names to fill the Library of Congress. Essentially, their one time association is all they have to go on. All these fools have done is shown why we're lacking in progress. Instead of passing the torch to the next generation, they've laid it down to fight for who get the prize (from the press) of passing it. By now the damn thing can't be lit worth a flip. And another generation now gets cast as being "At risk". Doesn't that sound soothing? "At Risk" . Say it 3 times for good measure. Still feel the same? (You get the picture).

    Enemies : Yeah. Everybody's got em. King alienated LBJ on Nam, among other things. And yes the ol KKK continues to spit on his legacy (with help from 1 & 2). But those companies now hocking King are those that would have met the wrath of the REAL Poor Peoples March. Remember what King said on April 3, 1968, BEFORE "I've Been To The Mountain Top"? He was talking about holding companies accountable for "not treating God's children right". The fight was not just about race, as much as about the root of segregations benefits. Money!! Which segues in to the last one.

    Bandits : It's easy to march for desegregating a bus, or bathroom, but not easy to desegregate poverty. How long has poverty had a Black face on it? So once a year, such companies get around their dismal greedy bottom line to honor an American Hero. Yeah right, especially since a lot of them and the fellow exploiters in business make a killing marketing to the black masses then dump down the good face to be what they always were. And they're not alone. Lest we forget King had enemies who looked just like him and also continue to take part in such exploitation (the old "What's In It For Me" syndrome).

    Bandits have many faces, in many places, among the races occupying spaces, as Soul-Patrol has documented over the years. These factors and the persons who constitute them have made me relish the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. as opposed to their King Industrial Complex.

    4. Isn't Soul-Patrol Black Owned (then how come it's integrated?)

    Brian Auger's Oblivion Express

    I'm always glad to respond on this particular issue, because it goes right to the heart of what Soul Patrol is all about. My brother and I created this "place in cyberspace" specifically to be an INTEGRATED set of Internet resources about Black Music/Culture.

    However, when we first started we briefly (very briefly) considered segmenting the whole thing up into marketing categories that would be designed to draw people in based on certain "preconceived notions". After all, we own the server and we can have as many web sites, url's, mailing lists, bulletin boards, internet radio stations, etc as we want to...(and we don't even have to tell people that we are Black owned, cuz we know that would turn some people off)

    Here are some of the kind of internet resources we considered:

    · "Black Adult Hip Hop " - for Black people over 40 who like hip hop, and still think that it holds any promise for the future

    · "Deep Soul " - for white people who want to become "experts" on Black music and assume they know more than Black people about their own culture

    · "Modern Knee-gro Hit Radio " - For Black people who think there was no legitimate form of music prior to 1995

    · "Jimi Hendrix (Honorary White Man) " - for white people who refuse to believe that that Jimi Hendrix was Black

    · "Gangsta Rap " - Membership restricted to white kids under 18 with their own credit cards.

    · "Purple Rain " - this list would be integrated, but very "cultish" in honor of it's "god"

    · "George Clinton and the P-Funk All Stars " - For white people aged 16 - 23 who already know everything there is to know about FUNK and consider P-Funk to be in the same class as Rage Against the Machine

    · "King Wynton " - For self hating Blacks and Classical music fans

    · Whitney Houston/Diana Ross/Mariah Carry - For Gossip mongers

    · "Euro Funk " - Based overseas, similar to "Deep Soul", except these people know how to dance

    · "White Blues " - for Black people who secretly enjoy the music of Stevie Ray Vaughn, but are afraid to admit it

    · "Graceland " - For people who think that Elvis Presley invented Rock n' Roll

    · "Old Skool " - For Black people who want to remember the music of the late 1970's fondly (even though they actually attended just one concert)

    · "Girl Groups " - A place to worship Phil Spector and the Brill Building songwriters as being geniuses and regard the artists as being "tools"

    · ""Disco Fever" - For the 10 million Americans who actually went to Disco's on a regular basis during the 1970's, but who now refuse to publicly admit to having done so

    · ""Big Chill" " - For people who think that all obscure songs ever released by the Motown label are actually worthwhile

    · "Winter In Amerikkka " - For those who worship a drugged out/self destructive out former genius

    · "Twisted Logic " - for members of all white Blues Societies

    · "Music Bootleggers " - For people who absolutely hate going to the record store. (It would be set up so that I would personally get a percentage of each individual transaction)

    And so on.

    My brother and I discussed creating a marketing strategy for what ultimately became Soul Patrol, based around ideas like the one's above because we knew that "divide and conquer" is a strategy that works. We could have created separate web sites (with different url's) for all of this and separate mailing lists, all the while, keeping our identities a secret. Hell, we could probably even be making money, if we had employed such a marketing strategy :)

    However that isn't how we were raised
    Unlike the BMA and "Knee-gro radio", Mike and I believe that our society should be an INTEGRATED one and that we should in fact go AGAINST THE CURRENT TREND OF THE MUSIC INDUSTRY AND SOCIETY AT LARGE AND CREATE AN INTERNET RESOURCE THAT CUTS ACCROOS ALL DEMOGRAPHIC SEGMENTS.

    We feel that there is a HUGE benefit to cross cultural (there's that old fashioned "black hippie" mentality creeping in communication on a world wide basis. People need to learn how to communicate with each other, if they can't than what hope is there for the future of our children if everyone is separated into "tribes/gangs"?
    Discussions about music, provide a wonderful platform that enables the kind of communication across racial/geographical boundaries that we have here.
    To me that is an important first step...

    Therefore the internet resources that we own will ALWAYS BE CONCIOUSLY INTEGRATED, regardless of "marketing trends".

    We are OPPOSED to the "modern day chitlin circuit"

    We realize that.
    · Some Black people don't like this
    · Some White people don't like this

    We don't care.
    And that is one of the reasons why we are celebrating KING DAY on Soul-Patrol.Net Radio at

    And on today of all day's, KING DAY is an EXCELLENT day to discuss the topic of integration so I am especially happy to discuss this topic.

    Thanks for allowing me to do just that!

    6. CelebratesBlack History Month

    Every Tone a Testimony: An African American Aural Tradition

    People around the Internet know that I am a person who is REALLY into that "outmoded/archaic" institution known as Black History Month. Traditionally here on Soul-Patrol we begin our celebration of Black History Month on Dr. King's birthday because…we just think that February is just TOO DAMN SHORT!! In fact the Soul Patrol website will be updated to reflect this :)

    (That means you will be getting a LOT of email from us in February related to the past, present and future of our music/culture, if it's too much for you, just delete it when it comes, but before you do, please pass it along to someone you know who might just appreciate the additional knowledge)

    On Soul-Patrol (and before that Prodigy Urban Sounds) we have made a conscious point of celebrating Black History Month here online since 1996, even though the conventional wisdom says that we should stop doing so. One year at Urban Sounds on Prodigy, where it was suggested to me by "management" that I shouldn't mention anything about Black History Month on the Urban Sounds website, because some white members might find the content to be "offensive".
    I told them...
    "Ok, what I will do is simply take the entire site down for the month of February, that way nobody will be offended...."
    They said...
    "That would violate your contract..."
    I said...
    "Fire me..."
    (And go forth and lead a happier life)

    In the end they let me put up what I wanted to

    Since that point in time, my thinking on just how to present Black History
    Month on the Internet has evolved!
    Here on Soul-Patrol, we celebrate Black History on a 24/7/365 basis.
    Thus we don't have a "special" web page or section for Black History Month. Black History Month is an important concept for all of us, Black, White, Young, Old, etc...
    Therefore, my brother Mike and I have decided to turn over the ENTIRE site into a "Black History Month Website".

    That's right..
    * All 600+ web pages
    * All 550,000 + Database entries
    * All 700 Soul-Patrol Magazine Readers
    * All 700 + Soul-Patrol Digest Readers
    * All 25,000 + Soul-Patrol Newsletter Readers
    * All 10,000 Monthly Soul-Patrol.Net Radio Listeners
    * The Soul-Patrol Chat Room (with special guests to be announced)
    * Soul Patrol Events (with OFFLINE Black History Month Events in NYC,
    Washington DC, Philadelphia PA, Los Angeles CA, Chicago IL, Pittsburgh PA, and Tampa FL)


    In addition we will be doing the following…

    1. A special focus on Black Owned Internet Business : We will be doing some special mailings during February to spotlight specific Black Owned Businesses here on the internet who are doing the right kind of things. If you are such a business owner, please feel free to contact me via email at: and find out how you can become a part of this program on a "first come first served basis"!

    2. The introduction of a new FREE information-sharing program called Soul-Patrol Network Feeds. This program will enable any website owner (large or small) to enhance the content of their site by receiving direct network feeds of some of the massive amount of Black Music/Culture data/information that we have stored on our server. It also gives us the opportunity to put a spotlight on web sites around the Internet who chose to participate in our network! In our opinion this is EXACTLY the type of thing that the internet was created for in the first place, before the damn profiteers got a hold of it!

    If you own a website, large or small go to the following link to find out more and to sign up AT NO CHARGE ...

    In effect, we have created the BIGGEST, BADDEST Black History Month Website on the ENTIRE Internet . We fully realize that some people won't like this. We realize that some people may find this offensive

    To those people we say...
    "FIRE US..."
    (and go forth and lead happier lives)

    "If you don't know where you came from, how will you know where you are going..."

    I know that there are a few of you out there who are wondering why I am making such a big deal about Black History Month. After all, isn't it an "old fashioned concept"?

    After all, nowadays we have Black men like "Masta P" and "Puff Daddy", who have proven that a Black man can beat the system. Why celebrate something that seems like it's a part of our "plantation past"?

    Black History Month is something that was created by Black people as a mechanism to bring focus to OUR history for OUR children. I think Carter G. Woodson started it and it has evolved over the years. I remember it being celebrated as "Brotherhood Week" when I was a kid, during February, then later it became "Negro History Week" and now it's an entire month.

    So why is Black History Month so important today?

    After all there are many people who think that the very concept of Black
    History Month is outmoded and archaic in today's society. My brother and I were raised in a household that held Black History as something that we hold near and dear to our hearts. We also have come to realize that not all households were like the one we were raised in. We think that it's important to give Black History the proper focus during this time of year. How else will our younger people learn?

    We just wanna do our part :)

    Stay tuned....
