Teddy Pendergrass, Viola Wills, and Hi-Tension, selected by Paul

24 04 2011

Teddy Pendergrass ~ When Somebody Loves You ~ Philadelphia International ~1978

Written and produced by Gamble & Huff for the 1978 Life Is A Song Worth Singing album which reached 11 on the Billboard album charts and 1 on the R&B album charts

Viola Wills ~ Dare To Dream~ Wide Angle Records / Streetwave UK ~ 1985

Well know for her 1979 hit “Gonna Get Along without You Now” – Viola Wills moved to Europe in the 1980’s and had a club hit with this one on Morgan Khan’s Streetwave label. I’m pretty sure she appeared on the UK version of Soul Train so I wonder if regular listener Funksta Gazza was on of the dancers on that show. Written by Viola Wills

Hi-Tension ~ You Make Me Happy ~ Streetwave ~1985

Their cover of the Surface track “Happy” – and what a version!

The Show goes out on Disco 935 ~ New York’s Jammer tonight (more details later).
The Podomatic Podcast will be avialable early on Monday morning.

LAST CHANCE to get a couple of our old shows from Podomatic today.
Show 71 and the rewind of Show 1 will be removed today to make space for the new shows, so get them quick!
