A number of media journalists have been invited to some regional, national, and area "ride and drive' events conducted by Hyundai. The purpose is to acquaint the media personnel with this new 2015 Sonata. From 2011 to 2014, the Sonta has been a great success for the Hyundai brand -- over 200,000 have been sold -- and the Sonata has received many, many awards.
During a morning briefing and presentation, BRANDON RAMIREZ, Senior Group Manager for Product Planning, was the lead speaker and presenter, explaining all the new changes to this new Sonata. During a lunch break in Clarksdale, Mississippi, ALAN GELL took a few minutes to talk with Brandon about this terrific new vehicle.
Charles Wright headed one of the great funk groups of the late '60s and early '70s, the Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band. Wright, who was born in Clarksdale, MS, was a singer, pianist, guitarist, and leader of the eight-member band, which had been recruited from Watts in Los Angeles. They were originally known asthe Soul Runners. Bill Cosby helped get the band off the ground by giving them appearances at his gigs. They began recording for Keyman in 1967, then moved to Warner Bros. in 1969. While "Do Your Thing" and "Till You Get Enough" were Top 20 R&B hits, their finest selection was "Express Yourself," a song that expressed the urge for freedom as adroitly as the Isley Brothers' "It's Your Thing" had in the '60s. It has also been among the most sampled funk tracks for hip-hop and rap groups. "Your Love (Means Everything to Me)" was their final R&B hit in 1971, peaking at number nine R&B and number 12 pop. The group's best ballad, "Love Land," did better among pop fans than R&B ones, many of whom saw it as a bit soft. They continued recording for Dunhill in 1973 before disbanding. Drummer James Gadson and guitarist Al McKay, who later joined Earth, Wind & Fire, were among the instrumental corps of the Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band.
Bill "Watermelon Slim" Holmans. What can you say about this man? Bonnie Raitt probably said it best when at a 2009 concert she called Slim a "living blues legend".
Born in Boston, Slim was raised in North Carolina listening to the housekeeper sing John Lee Hooker songs.
Watermelon Slim & The Workers have garnered 17 Blues Music Award nominations including a record-tying six in both 2007 & 2008 and Slim is the only blues artist in history with twelve in two consecutive years.

How did you first get started?
I was a late starter I guess. I started playing guitar when I was 19 and fell in love instantly. I always loved rock’n’roll from Elvis through to Jon Spencer and when you start following the roots of Rock you’re on a freight train headed straight for the heart of the blues. I was completely self-taught by ear listening to Max Crawdaddy on RRR radio in Melbourne on Thursday nights got me deep into the blues masters and I was hooked.
I took off to London and played a bunch of sessions and started experimenting with my own bands and stayed 10 years.
