Today's show is a special treat as groundbreaking filmmaker Melvin Van Peebles shares much of his accomplishments including his recent Lifetime Achievement Award at Chicago's CIMMfest5 last week.

Van Peebles is  best known for directing films like "Watermelon Man," and "Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song" during the early '70's. He was always disgusted about how blacks are portrayed in Hollywood.

Few people know he was long ago a noted author and novelist and a forunner of rap even before Gil Scott Heron.

Musician Billy Bland, stays on for Part-2 as we discuss a Brand New Funkedelic song & the loss of one of their great bassplayers; Coredell "Boogie" Mosson.
