WKNR Requests

SoulfulDetroit.com FORUM: Archive - After July 12, 2003: WKNR Requests
Top of pageBottom of page   By Sue (152.163.252.68) on Monday, July 14, 2003 - 07:32 pm:

If any of you Detroiters have any requests for a song from Keener's heyday that you just have to hear when WKNR rides again Aug. 15-16, post it here and I'll pass it on.

A few to pique your brains:

"Misery" by the Dynamics
"Psychotic Reaction" by Count Five
"East Side Story," by Bob Seger
"Gino is a Coward" by Gino Washington
"Across the Street" by Lenny O'Henry
"Wait a Minute" by Tim Tam and the Turnons
"Poor Unfortunate Me" by J.J. Barnes
"Love's Gone Bad" by the Underdogs
"I Wanna Testify" by the Parliaments
"I'll Bet You" by Funkadelic
"I Got a Thing" by Funkadelic
"Heavy Music Part II" by Seger
"Who Do You Love" by the Woolies ...

Doesn't have to all be local, but it's good to hear the stuff we heard growing up that corporate radio doesn't play anymore, like "Girl, Why You Want to Make Me Blue" by the Temptations instead of the inevitable "My Girl" or "Get Ready."

Yes Jim Feliciano - Good one - '68 "Look What I Almost Missed" / Parliaments.

Medusa --
"Selfish One" -- great one, I hadn't thought of that in a long time! What's the Volumes' other big hit?

Fury, great stuff. "I'll Be In Trouble" by the Tempts -- that's exactly what I mean. I can't remember the last time I heard that.

Jim -- I can "hear" a song by the San Remo Strings in my mind, that was played a lot on Keener but I'm not sure if it's "Hungry for Love" or not.

Top of pageBottom of page   By Pogo (66.129.43.61) on Tuesday, July 15, 2003 - 08:02 am:

Sue,
Volumes' big hit - "I Love You" (Chex '62)
also charted with "Gotta Give Her Love" (American Arts '64)
The flip of the latter was a dynamite tune - "I Can't Live Without You"

Pogo

Sue.....
....agree with you about the "if it wasn't a million seller, we won't play it" syndrome. Granted this list is a little pedestrian, but.....

Persecution Smith--Bob Seger and the Last Heard
Sugar And Spice--Cryan Shames
Tall Cool One--Wailers
Walk Don't Run '64--The Venturers
Reserection Shuffle--Ashton Garderner and Dyke
Pa Pa Ooh Mau Mau--The Rivingtons
Hang On Sloopy--The Vibrations (i think)

As to the Rivingtons--I get it crossed with "Surfin' Bird", which I hate. "Funniest sound I ever heard...." is what I'm looking for. And in that vein, wouldn't mind occasionally hearing that "Gimme 'Dat Ding" style song that popped up every so often to keep things interesting. Also would like WXDX (?) to resume webcasting so I can hear it.

Sue, let's add one more to my "KEENER GOLD" wish list.
Here's one other Detroit *hit* that debuted at #28, on WKNR, on August 21, 1967....

This one local R&B instrumental number was off the RIC-TIC record label (#127), and it stayed on the "KEENER 13" playlist for 6 consecutive weeks, back when, during which time it had jumped all the way into the #4 spot, and peaked right there... on September 4, 1967.

I know you'll remember it, but let's listen to it right here again, one more time: http://www.melingo.com/thesoulnet/price.ram,

Just another memorable, "KEENER" 'vibration'!

Now this time it's goin' out, just for you... as I'm gonna give you another WKNR "KEENER GOLD" *hit* by J. J. Barnes....

I can now hear WKNR's BOB GREEN shouting out this "Keener" promo as if on cue--

"...please let me in... you know I love you, love you, baby"!

And oh by the way--
notice that most destinct' Motown 'sound' on this '65 JJ Barnes R&B smash on RIC-TIC #106.

And I've often wondered whether that was actually "Pistol" Allen banging on those 'skins' on this one? I sure think it sounds like he is!!!

One song I was surprised isn't on the Keener charts is one of my favorites, "Sally Go Round the Roses" by the Jaynettes. Maybe it came out too early in '63 to chart on Keener?

I'm pretty sure they played it as a (very recent) oldie anyway ... the later Grace Slick version, which I can't remember at all, does show up on the Keener charts.

I found out a few years ago that Neil Young is obsessed with "Sally Go 'Round the Roses" -- the Jaynettes' version ...

Andy Alonzo - I used to visit a friend on 15th & Myrtle (MLK Dr.) There as a Tommy & Annie Ruffin living on that street. However, I did not know them. Tommy drove a 2-toned white and pink Oldsmobile convertible, and a red Ford convertible with a record player in it. (Who could forget those cars?) When "Action Speaks Louder..." and "Mr. Bus Driver" were released Tommy told everyone that David was his cousin. Is this the same Annie?

....the Grace Slick version of 'Sally Go Round The Roses" is available on The Great Society's "Conspicuous Only By Their Absence" (Columbia) LP from '68. Actually not a very good band. Excellent call on the original.

Hey my Brit 'Bro,
Glad you enjoyed it 'blood'... and of course, another 'fave' would have to be BARNES previous other record side titled, "Poor Unfortunate Me."

Now... go to the forum's topic **GREATEST SOUL SINGER (2)** thread and check out the *prestine* audio 'CD' quality sound, of those two Sam Cooke 'classics' I added there this very evening.

Turn it up... and you'll agree the 'crisp' audio sound on these two will completely blow you away!

Top of pageBottom of page   By MEL&THEN SOME (81.174.192.24) on Friday, July 18, 2003 - 10:10 pm:

Soulful Jim
just so happens that I still have on disc my 'Poor unfortunate me' by JJ and the flip is A-Okeh as well 'she aint ready'
on Ring records(no.101)
which you know bro'
I also have a version of 'poor unfortunate me'by Gi-Gi and the Charmaines.
Sam Cooke
top artist without a doubt
I first bought an lp way back in around 1973/4 a double album and still have it today.
A mate of mine years ago was trying to collect every 45 and album by him and wasnt far away the last I saw of him.

I have always loved 'sugar dumpling'and still have it on the uk issue but the guy I mentioned above was flipping over another cut of therecord by Sam and I tell ya what bro'
it was total garbage,
now garbage in the sense that after being bred on the uptempo dancer that I and everyone knew he plays this version that is totally 100% different
his 45 was the exact same intro and when you expect it to then go into its usual uptempo beat
out bellows a great big Hammond Organ.

Jesus Jim
now I like organs to a certain degree
but this just sounded like a whopping big cathederal sized organ that wouldnt of been lost in a hammer house of horrors movie.

That was a good 15 years ago now
if I heard it now
I would probably dig it(not)
thats the magic of music
different strokes etc.

Gotta flip
so JIM my man
stay hip
and keep on spinning those platters that matter.

My pleasure sweetheart!

I remember those two RIC-TIC 'Barnes' R&B classics very well, as I actually heard them first played on Detroit 'soul' stations WJLB AM, and WCHB AM, and of course... as well as later on, when they both debuted on WKNR "Keener" radio, going way back in 1965 and 1966!

Again, you will note that both of the 'Barnes' hits sounded very much 'Motownish', if I may coin the phrase, as the 'FUNKs' would sneek around behind Berry Gordy's back from time to time, and off they went over on to Davison Blvd, and just 'jam' it up with the likes of Edwin Starr, J. J. Barnes, the 'Holidays', Gino Washington, Freddie Gorman, etc., until one day, a very inscensed Berry got wind of it and signed up those 'free-lanced' musicians, as they were now (then) contracted with Motown only-- and the was the end of that story... until a couple of years later when Gordy purchased RIC-TIC records from Ed Wingate in 1968... and the 'Golden World' studios thus then, had become Motown Studio B.

Naturally, when Berry Gordy bought out GOLDEN WORLD and RIC-TIC records, well unfortunately... that was the end of that 'tune'!

Top of pageBottom of page   By Jim Feliciano in Detroit. (205.188.209.109) on Saturday, July 19, 2003 - 11:44 pm:

Since were talkin' RIC-TIC records, the very first record off that label was #100 and it was by Gino Washington with his Detroit smash *hit* "Gino Is A Coward"... remember that one?

But one thing I do recall from back then, that 60s Detroit radio 'soul' station WCHB AM, used to have a tendency to play a lot of 'B' sides as well, like the one 'B' side titled "Puppet On A String", by Gino Washington... which was essentially on the 'flip' side of, again... "Gino Is A Coward".

And you're gonna hear that one Gino Washington RIC-TIC 'B' side right here, once again: http://www.melingo.com/thesoulnet/puppeton.ra

You know "COUNT"....
you are soooo 'cooool', matter of fact you have got to be THE COOLEST 'cat' on this here forum that we've 'grown' to just love hearing from, and it's just got to be the (50s)'language'... it's your signature unlike no other-- don't you just know it!

But about that J. J. Barnes title you had mentioned, I believe that one was on the GROOVESVILLE record label, or was that one on RING? I do now that it wasn't on the RIC-TIC label, at least as a recond '45 single!

But anyway if there's a second 'cool' cat choice here, that I've got to go with my man Mel, 'sides he's pretty cool(and then some).

Listen here 'ma man, you have yourself a safe trip to 'Vegas, and good luck... have a good time, and I hope you win yourself a TON of spendin' cash!

Just a sample of the kool rods I've done,if you ever seen the movie COBRA with SLY STALLONE,I did the Merc's for that movie.Some great rock and roll groups and doo-wop groups in VEGAS and hope to hook up again with PETE MOORE while there.As far as the MUSTANG ranch,last time there I found a noddle in the hair pie,but thats better than a fly in my soup.
Keep a kool hammer hangin 4our speed and will see ya soon.

Count,
When do you get back from LV?

Yeah they chased everybody from the parking lot at 13 and Woodward -- sound familiar? Next thing there'll be security guards in the lots on Woodward, just like back in the day, chasing off hot rodders.

The big gathering place now seems to be the Shell station north of 13 Mile.
