The legend & impact of Soul Train
Hello there everyone DJ Dizzy here & I'm going to speak on perhaps a show that was a hue inspiration on American culture that of a dance show called Soul Train. It got its start in the 1970s & spanned on through 3 decades until it left the air in 2006 This show was basically a more soulful version of American Bandstand. The main host Don Cornelius (Rest his soul) Spotlighted new acts involved in hip hop & R&B as well as discovered new musical acts such as a group called Shalamar who were originally dancers on the show. It would not only go on to take black America by storm but also be a part of pop culture as a phenomenon
Though its gone from the air it still remains a solid part of pop culture & spans a new generation of fans regardless of age, Here's a documentary detailing on how it all came to be. To which I hope you enjoy.
Soul Train the Hippest Trip in America.
