  • David Ruffin-Statue of a Fool 1:24:24 1.51 PM

    24 GEN 2024 · Intro by: Gail Nobles Story by: Gail Nobles Today we're going to talk about David Ruffin and the song Statue of a Fool. Hello! I'm Gail Nobles welcome to the oldies show. Statue of a Fool is a song written by Jan Crutchfield which has been recorded by a number of country artist. But when you hear the voice of David Ruffin singing it, it sounds different and the song credit names are both Jan Crutchfield and David Ruffin. The song comes from David's album Who Am I released in 1975. Statue of a Fool became a hit for David. I've seen David Ruffin performed the song with the Temptations. During his performance, he would stand still like a statue. It sounds as if someone considered himself in the lyrics a foolish person in a relationship. David acted out the powerful words very well, and the song had a soulful melody, and now the song is a classic. When David sings the song, I can feel the emotion coming from him. When your heart is broken, it can be hard to get over someone to move on. So maybe that's why the song is called Statue of a Fool. Statue of a Fool is a powerful song. It is a great example of what great songs are all about. The song is timeless. I'm Gail Nobles. Thank you for listening to the podcast oldies show.

  • Black Ivory 12:15:23 7.06 PM

    16 DIC 2023 · Photo: Reginald Wickham - copyright holder Usage: Wikipedia Welcome to the Podcast Oldies Show. Today you hear about a group call Black Ivory. Hello! I'm Gail Nobles. Black Ivory was originally known as the Mellow Souls and formed in Harlem New York in the summer of 1969. The group got their start by auditioning over the phone with musician Patrick Adams. Adams began to train and develop the group. The group featured songwriter and prolific disco producer Leroy Burgess, Stewart Bascombe, and Russell Patterson. They were managed by Patrick Adams and executive at the Today/Perception record company. Burgess was the lead voice of the majority of their hits in the early 1970s. Their 1972 debut album Don't Turn Around became a top 20 hit spending 19 weeks on the Billboard R&B albums chart and peeking at number 13. Black Ivory scored three top 40 R&B hits in 1972 including the singles Don't Turn Around (number 38) and You and I (number 32) from their debut album. The group recorded several uptempo songs in the disco vein, such as "Big Apple Rock", "Walking Downtown (On a Saturday Night)", "What Goes Around (Comes Around)" and, later, "Mainline" but, not being known for the style, they were unable to compete when disco became the dominant music style. I love some of the group ballads such as: You Mean Everything To Me. In 1995, the group reunited and returned to the stage on the Classic Soul circuit, featuring all three original members, with Stuart Bascombe doing most of the leads.

  • Jimmy Briscoe & the Little Beavers 9:28:23 2.40 PM

    28 SET 2023 · Hello I'm Gail Nobles on the Podcast Oldies Show. Before I get started, I just want you to know about a Facebook page to follow calked Keep Our Music Alive. They remind you of all the great singers, music groups, and bands. That’s Keep Our Music Alive on Facebook. From that very page, I found out about a group called Jimmy Briscoe and The Little Beavers. In the 1970s, when The Jackson 5's popularity gave rise to many other teenage groups, five young men from Baltimore, Maryland were discovered at a talent show in Baltimore by music promoter Paul Kyser. They recorded a number of singles, starting with Frankie Lymon & the Teenagers' "Why Do Fools Fall in Love", backed with "Sugar Brown", in 1971 on Atlantic Records and then for the Pi Kappa label distributed by Buddah Records as one of its subsidiary/affiliated labels. Their album My Ebony Princess, released by Pi Kappa in 1974, was reviewed as a "top album pick" by Billboard magazine;[3] the title cut gave them their greatest success. The group's vocal harmony set them apart from the other groups, though lack of distribution left them relatively unknown to the public. Other releases included "Where Were You (When I Needed You)", "I Only Feel This Way When I'm With You", "I'll Care For You", and "So Sweet The Love".

    4 NOV 2022 · Audio: XERB Rosarito Beach, Mexico - Monday, March 15, 1971 By: Free the Airchecks Usage: - Public Domain Uploaded by 92.9 Kick FM Hello! I’m GN & you’re listening to the Podcast Oldies Show. I love oldies & radio personality, Wolfman Jack. The most famous US radio personality of all time. I loved the Wolfman’s character. (Acting) Do you dig it man? That’s what he would ask if he were alive to hear conversations about him. When he played a song sometimes, he would let you know what song was coming up next. (Acting) Here’s Daryl Hall & John Oats - I Can’t Go For That. I loved his voice & and he would make quiet a bit of noise while playing the music. (Wolf sound) Yea, you might remember him most from his howling wolf sound. I loved everything about the Wolfman. Even his look. In Dec. 1963, he took a demo tape to XERF, but instead ended up operating the station. For eight months, he aired The Wolfman Jack Show. XERF was the most powerful commercial radio station on earth. I’m going to share with you now one of Wolfman’s commercials from XERB which the Wolfman moved to in 1965. It was another powerful clear-channel radio station. It was the sister station of Mexican radio station, XERF. I’m going to take you now back down Radio Memory Lane. (Commercial Playing) On July 1, 1995, Wolfman Jack left us. He never left my mind & heart. What would he say right now? He’d probably say: I Love You Baby!” You’re listening to the Podcast Oldies Show. I’m your host, Gail Nobles.
