The Staples Singers Podcast
This week on NewbsRadio we are tracking down the connections between the wonderfully godly sounds of the Staples Singers and Axl Rose‘s sexy collaboration with Steven Adler‘s girlfriend for the vocal take on Rocket Queen. That’s what we challenged ourselves to do anyway – and of course we did it. But along the way we got to speak with author Michaelangelo Matos a frequent contributor to SPIN and the guy behind Bloomsbury’s 33 1/3 series’ Sign o the Times by Prince. You can check out 333sound.com to buy that gem of a stack of paper with a cover. Thanks to Mr. Matos for carving out some time to chat with us.
It’s March 12th today and so we promised to link to a video compilation of our favourite voice actor and the subject of our Frank Welker Podcast, so here it is in all it’s glory.
If you can believe it, last time I looked, Welker is just behind Sam Jackson in all-time gross sales if you added up all the box office receipts from films they’ve been involved with. He actually owned the category from 1980 until 2011 until he was surpassed by Sam Jackson.
Anyway, that’s Frank Welker, check out our Frank Welker Podcast after listening to this episode – it’s really good.
Our next episode is going to be about Gang of Four’s Entertainment! and we’re getting to chat with author Kevin Dettmar whose book about that album is being released in March 2014. We should have some copies of that to give away soon, so stay tuned!
Finally, going to leave you with this, it’s the first track off Graffiti Bridge and probably the worst piece of garbage I’ve heard since Guns and Roses got back together without Slash. Can’t Stop This Feeling I’ve Got.
