groundhog day and the best love songs from 1965

the theme song to the great cosmic love story, groundhog day, is sonny & cher's "i've got you babe," originally released in 1965.

groundhog dayturns out there were a lot of great love songs released in 1965 and this week we play them all (well, an hour's worth in any event). 

and you'll also be brought into the cosmic weave of "groundhog day" as well, with excerpts from that movie springled throughout these great songs that were released 50 years ago.

they're not all brand-spankling new, but most of them are still in our heads: the righteous brothers, otis redding, manfred mann...et al.

Black Voices of 1968

Black voices in 1968 were all over the charts. The music was as diverse as the Otis Reddingfirst names by which we still know it today: Aretha, Otis, Marvin, Sam, Dave, Dionne, Diana, Stevie, and Sly.

And the music wasn't just soul music; it was creative souls making all kinds of music. [that's Otis Redding, left]

This week, my show will get you immersed in the palpable melodies of Stevie Wonder, feel the kick and drive of James Brown, and pulse with the reggae rhythms of Johnny Nash.

The playlist is 17 songs.
