17th September
written by Matt The Cat

Brotha Ray would have been 75 on September 23rd.

In honor of what would have been his 75th birthday, HARLEM remembers the greatest and most versatile R&B; singer/songwriter/composer of all time, RAY CHARLES. He was the blind troubadour of R&B; and the surveyor of soul because he was out there doin’ it before anyone. We will remember Ray’s humble R&B; beginnings in the early 1950s, all week long on. Ray Charles was the mayor of Harlem and we’ll never forget him. He is the centerpiece of the whole HARLEM concept and it’s my pleasure to dedicate the entire hour to his soulful sounds.

The Ray Charles HARLEM show airs:

Monday at 1pm EST
Tuesday Night At 9pm PST/Midnight EST
Friday at 6pm EST
Sunday at 11am EST
