    A Salute To Black Artists - Black History MonthWritten by Mike Arnold
    Every year during the month of February, our country celebrates Black History Month. I have thought about all the black artists that has touched our musical lives and realized black artists have been a major part of creating rock and roll. Brian Hasbrook, Tom Thompson, James Downing and I decided to celebrate Black History Month by creating a Music Discussion audio podcast of some of our favorite black artists.

    In this podcast we discussed our opinions of the artists, the concerts we’ve attended, and some facts from our researcher, James Downing. We had a great time recording this show and discussing the artists as we walked through the history of the Mississippi Blues, through the Motown Sound, the dance groups, the disco era, and the various Rock and Roll styles.

    In this podcast we discuss the following artists…
    Robert Johnson, John Lee Hooker, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Little Richard, Fats Domino, Ray Charles, Jackie Wilson, James Brown, Bobby Womack, Sam and Dave, Wilson Pickett, Gladys Knight and the Pips, The Temptations, The Spinners, The Four Tops, The Jackson Five, Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, Al Green, Diana Ross and the Supremes, BB King, Freddie King, Buddy Guy, Sly and the Family Stone, Jimi Hendrix, Ike and Tina Turner, Tina Turner, Stevie Wonder, Billy Preston, Rick James, MC Hammer, Parliament Funkadelic, Mothers Finest, Commodores, The Ohio Players, The Gap Band, Earth Wind and Fire, Michael Jackson, Living Colour, Lenny Kravitz, Arrested Development, and Prince
