Star Time #16: Everybody Plays the Fool



A simple, straight-up show this week. We got the first band to feature Eddy "Electric Avenue" Grant, comparing your lover to a summer's donut, funky introspection of the Doris Day kind, "The (Ooooooooooow-hah!) Cat Walk," the Star Time background track that finally gets actual airplay, a bunch of people who knew James Brown, a tribute to the late Cuba Gooding Sr. of the Main Ingredient, and more more more. Enjoy.
