TSS, WYEP 8/20/22: IkeSarahNonaLalahAlewyaKiahMarthaJoy

On The Soul Show today:

  • Isaac Hayes would have turned 80 on August 20th, 2022. Tune in for some of his career touchpoints, including the Hayes/Porter early Stax period, Moses, and live at Tahoe.
  • Nona Hendryx and the late Sarah Dash shared birthdates; three tracks today from their Labelle supergroup, starting with the early Bluebelles moniker. Also, reflections on the similarity between their All Girl Band and a Dire Straits classic. Tangentville is a fun place.
  • Lalah Hathaway’s back, this time with a Boney James collaboration.
  • New music from Saudi-born Brit Alewya.
  • Amythyst Kiah has a new EP.
  • Joy Clark, whom Pittsburghers have seen often with Water Seed, sent me a fine solo track.
  • Martha High, James Brown’s most tenured female co-vocalist, has surfaced with a Ropeadope Records LP.
