Before he was Mr. Dynamite,
Before he was The Hardest Working Man In Show Business,
Before there was even Soul Music,
He was a great rhythm & blues singer…

The Late, Great

This week HARLEM takes a look at the birth of a true legend. James Brown’s career began in March of 1956 with the release of his first 45, “Please, Please, Please” b/w “Why Do You Do Me” (Federal 12256) and he never looked back. Matt The Cat is going to spin both the A and B sides of every JB single that Federal released in 1956 with the full story behind the story. These records are truly the building blocks of soul music. Please join us as we honor the late, great James Brown with a look at how he began his fantastic career.
