Our Blog at www.Katara-Rhythm.com is entitled "Living in America- Freedom is measured by Economics.” That will be our shows theme. “African-Americans’ buying power is expected to reach $1.1 trillion by 2015.” This was a statement by Nielsen (9-22-2011) in their Consumer Report on the Power of the African-American Consumer. It was based upon data from couple of prominent consumer data-gathering organizations. Nielsen released a report on black consumption entitled Resilient, Receptive and Relevant in 2013. Those are the three key words we will look at on this show. Listen to comments from “People on the Street” regarding the consumer Report. It’s a new segment for our show. We examine the performance of Chadwick Boseman in the James Brown bio film “Get on Up.” We will review a couple of cuts from Bill Banfield’s Jazz Urbane CD, “Playing with Other People’s Heads.” Rich Tycoon will drop by allowing us to debut his latest recording. And of course, there will be other surprises. Join us for what promises to be a real lively show.

Tony Wilson is the only Entertainer/Musician that The Godfather of Soul James Brown endorsed and approved of in writing : " To Tony Wilson # 2, Keep on being me" - James Brown. JB called Tony personally to back him up at The Soul of America Festival in his hometown for what would turn out to be The Godfather's final concert in Augusta Geogia.
Fact: Did you know that James Brown single handedly wrote more songs than his mentors Mozart, Beethoven, Bach, Strauss. The great Irving Berlin wrote 1.001 tunes and James Brown wrote 5,500 songs. What is the point? The point is that James Brown never wrote a song that he couldn't sing to his mother and he truly was a role model in the music industry and for all that loved him.
Tony Wilson, the Young James Brown is keeping the The Godfather of Soul's visual legacy alive and on the one!
