I think TV One should do a show called "Dorothy B. Jackson and her Twenty-Seven Cats".

Any plans to review 5 Stairsteps (Ooh-Child). I understand their lead singer just pasted away. They were big in the 70s.

Would love to se a segment on the New York group from the 1970s – Black Ivory.

Glad Unsung is doing a program on the Delfonics, A truly unsung group is Maze & Frankie Beverly. Hope that's in the works soon.

This show is a lot like a segment I did for the radio program RadioScope in the 90s called Flasback. I interviewed folks like James Brown, The Temptations, The Time, KC and the Sunshine Band, War and the list goes on. Anybody remember the show?
