Take a ‘Hip Trip’ With Me

  • Wednesday I hosted the Majic 102.3 and DC Lottery Soul Train Event at Union Station. It was a great time, dancing and having fun with all the fans that came out. It also brought back  all kinds of memories of past TJMS events, my fantasy of actually winning the lottery, and of course,  Soul Train.

    Come take a hip trip with me back to weekends in front of the TV.

    Long before we all used to watch “Scandal” together, we watched Soul Train.  Everything stopped when that theme song came on.

    We didn’t even mind that Rufus and Chaka Khan, The Commodores, Al Green, and every hot group in the business was lip synching.  The mics had no cords…and that was before cordless mics, but it was okay.

    We didn’t notice because we had too many other distractions…like all those great shots that the cameraman used to get.  Talk about winning the lottery…how lucky was a man to have THAT job.

    And the dancers!

    We were so happy to see people who looked like us…or looked the way we WISHED we looked. And they were wearing the clothes we wish we had.   Now, when you watch the Soul Train reruns…the clothes don’t look so good.  It looks like a bad episode of “What’s Happenin!”  But back then…you would have done anything to have a polyester jump suit, an apple cap and a vest with fringes.

    1. I would love to watch the Soul Train line……to see what Pat “the Butterfly” Davis would do and wear; what Tyrone Swan ( tall light skinned brotha with a huge afro ) would be doing; seeing the joy in LIl Joe’s face when he came down the line; and watching for those who dared to wear the highest platform shoes.
