Take a ‘Hip Trip’ With Me

Comments: 3  | Leave A Comment

The women were women a guy like me could only dream to meet.  Damita Jo…the Asian Lady with the long hair…Jodi Whatley before she had drama.  These were our celebrities.  This was our reality show.

Remember the commercials.  You have to understand that this was the only time we saw black people in commercials.  And you really believed that if you used a blow up kit, your afro would explode and look perfect.  And how many of you, like me, never got the Soul Train Scramble Board right?  One time I couldn’t figure it out…and the group was L.T.D.

But what I remember most was the smoothest brother I had ever seen…running it.  Talk, dark, handsome, cool, confident…deep voice, slooooowwww talking.  People don’t realize that Soul Train was really a 15 minute show…Don just stretched it out to an hour because he talked so slowly.

I miss him and anytime I have a chance to honor his memory, I jump at the chance.  In the meantime, our goal was to make the longest Soul Train line in history and the most late to work excuses, too!

If you have a favorite Soul Train moment let me have it. Peace,Love…and you know the rest!

  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.
