Dr. Nick - "Southern Soul Rumpin'"/Facebook Live

Facebook Live isn’t a brand new Facebook feature but there are very few radio personalities that use it as a tool to ‘televise’ their radio show.  Enter Dr. Nick, the host of Washington, D. C.’s  “Southern Soul Rumpin’” on WPFW. His show comes on from 2:00 – 4:00 every Saturday afternoon and he currently airs it on Facebook Live!  How cool is that???  He’s revolutionizing the way all radio personalities will eventually reach their audience.  I love that he’s using social media to air his show which just so happens to be the only radio show in the entire DMV (District, Maryland, Virginia) area that’s dedicated to southern soul and the blues!  It’s a joy to watch Dr. Nick as he interacts with his lovely co-host, Lady C, and they keep us entertained throughout the entire show.

Dr. Nick fills the Southern Soul Rumpin’ time with great music, fantastic interviews, music news, and information about upcoming concerts - his outgoing personality makes his show a lot of fun.  He is so knowledgeable about a wide variety of things and really knows his southern soul music.  Dr. Nick works extremely hard and emcees/hosts tons of events all the time throughout the entire region, including Blue Monday Blues which is held at 6pm each Monday at Westminster Church located at 400 I Street SW in Washington, D.C.

To listen to Dr. Nick’s “Southern Soul Rumpin’” show on Saturday afternoons, tune your radio to 89.3 WPFW if you’re in the DMV; listen online via wpfwfm.org/radio/;  listen via TuneIn on your phone/tablet; or go to Nick Johnson’s page on Facebook and watch the show live!

Thank you Dr. Nick!!  We love you for keeping southern soul alive in Washington, D. C.!

Billy Ray Charles - "Nursery Rhymes"

There is something about Billy Ray Charles' voice that I just love.  I want him to sing a love song to me. Lol I know a few of his songs but Nursery Rhymes is my absolute favorite.  I love the guitar solo, the music, the melody, and everything about this song.  Billy's niece wants to hear him tell her a fairy tale story before she goes to bed and like a good uncle, he tells her a story. It's not your typical red riding hood story - this girl wasn't very good.

So you want to hear a nursery rhyme, well I got a nursery rhyme for you!.

Once upon a time like in fairy tales
Where the bad guy never survives, no
I came home early and like papa bear
I couldn't believe my eyes

Chorus
Somebody been sitting in my chair
Somebody been eating my porridge
Somebody been sleeping in my bed
And like the three little bears, there won't be no happy ending
No happy ending

Let me talk to you
Won't be no rescue, no hero
This time it won't save the day
Red riding hood's been a bad girl
Gave all her cookies away

Chorus
Somebody been sitting in my chair
Somebody been eating up, eating up my porridge
Somebody been sleeping in my bed
And like the big bad wolf, and there won't be no happy ending
No happy ending

Won't be no rescue, won't be no hero, no
This time it won't even save the day
Red riding hood, she's been a bad, bad girl
Gave all her cookies away, away

Chorus
Somebody been sitting in my chair
Somebody been eating, eating my porridge
Somebody been sleeping, sleeping in my bed
And like the big bad wolf, there won't be no happy ending
No happy ending

Humpty dumpty sat on the wall
Humpty dumpty, he had a great fall
And all the king's horses, and all the king's men
Couldn't put humpty back together again
No happy ending
Ain't got no happy ending
Little red riding hood just ain't no good
She gave all her cookies away
I'm like a big bad wolf gonna blow your house down
Nursery rhymes

Nursery Rhymes is taken from Billy Ray Charles' 2005 Southern Soul Done My Way album/cd.  See Daddy B Nice's great overview and bio on Billy Ray Charles - see http://www.southernsoulrnb.com/artistguide.cfm?aid=75.

Enjoy!!!  Great music!
