The Soul Train

CeeJay

NEW AGE POSTING
The origins of Soul Train can be traced to 1965 when WCIU-TV, an upstart UHF station in Chicago, began airing two youth-oriented dance programs: Kiddie-a-Go-Go and Red Hot and Blues. These programs specifically the latter, which featured a predominantly African-American group of in-studio dancers—would set the stage for what was to come to the station several years later. Don Cornelius, a news reader and backup disc jockey at Chicago radio station WVGN, was hired by WCIU in 1967 as a news and sports reporter. Cornelius also was promoting and emceeing a touring series of concerts featuring local talent (sometimes called "record hops") at Chicago-area high schools, calling his traveling caravan of shows "The Soul Train". WCIU-TV took notice of Cornelius's outside work and in 1970, allowed him the opportunity to bring his road show to television.

This pointless boring thread is just like you.

Worthless. Your life is made up of copying and pasting other peoples work and representing it as your own. You don't contribute a thing to this place, you just shit it up.

That's why everyone has you on ignore and everyone hates you.

Just like your fake funny book that doesn't exist. You don't exist as far as this board is concerned.

No go lick some toilet seats, there's work to do!
