SUNNY 'SWEET DADDY FONK' WONG & DJZIGZAG are back from their TWO WEEK - WAGRadio "EAST END SOUTHERN MUSIC TOUR (IS FUN) 2010' VISIT to the U.S. SOUTH

One thousand seven hundred and forty two miles driven! Seven U.S. states visited!! Countless back country roads travelled and innumerable pieces of fried chicken washed down with Coca-Cola and the two brothers from diff'en't motha's are back home to the rain and soggy drifting cotton skies of the South of Canada's West Coast - while in their minds they are still visualizing the first time they glimpsed real Suthu'n cotton still on the plant. Whiter than the whitest snow they'd ever seen. Big balls of Brook Benton boll- weevilly cotton!
They will tell you the good and the bad as they experience it. . .
Our hosts of two, possibly three soon-to-be-broadcast 'East End Southern Music Tour 2010' radio shows on WAGRadio, Wong and ZZ still can't get the sight of the ghetto in the most beautiful Southern city of Chattanooga, Tennessee out of their mind. They were both speechless and afraid FOR its inhabitants when they saw it.
SO GET READY DEAR FANS -
AS ALWAYS THE MUSIC WILL BE THE MAIN FOCUS OF THE PROGRAM PRESENTED BUT YOU HOPEFULLY WILL GET A SENSE OF THE FUN AND WONDER FELT BY DJZZ AND DADDY FONK AS THEY DROVE THROUGH THE SOUTH FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THEIR ALMOST SEVENTY YEARS OF LIVING - ENJOYING THE LAND THAT HAD GIVEN THEM SO MUCH MUSIC - THE JOY OF THEIR LIFE.

MORE BAD NEWS - SORRY TO TELL Y'ALL - LYFE JENNINGS IS BACK IN PRISON - - 3 and a half YEARS - WHAT A WASTE ! ! LET'S WISH HIM STRENGTH & INNER PEACE

LYFE JENNINGS
CANCELLED HIS APPEARANCE AT THE SHOWBOX
IN SEATTLE, WASHINGTON ON SEPTEMBER 23nd AND THEN TOLD ALL HIS FANS (via twitter) THAT
HE WOULD BE (CRYPTICALLY) "FOREVER IN (THEIR) DEBT" and THAT HE HAD "HAD A FABULOUS CAREER BECAUSE OF (THEM)".
We now know that Mr. Jennings is incarcerated because of an incident in 2008 that involved his ex-girlfriend and mother of his children and a resutlting DUI-test-refusal charge plus criminal tresspass, discharging of a weapon near a street , possession of that weapon by a convicted felon and fleeing or attempting to elude the police.....
The wonderfully talented LYFE JENNINGS will be away from us for three and a half years.

NEW* MUST-HAVE COMPANION PIECES TO THE 'RnB INDIES' SET OF BOOKS - OH YEAH ! THE DISCOGRAPHY FOR NEW WORLD AFRICAN RECORD COLLECTORS

Whenever I want to check a date, record label or release number of a Rhythm 'n' Blues record the first place I look is Eyeball Productions four part series 'The R'n'B Indies'.
It has been indispensible in my obsession of tabulating favourite records from certain years, decades or time periods.
Publisher, Bob McGrath, who I worked with in the advertising business in Vancouver, B.C., has also published two more invaluable discographies.
'The Blues Discography' and 'The Gospel Discography'.
Both became tools of my chart-plotting hobby.
Now, oh joy! Along comes Bob's latest and closest to my own heart - a three volume set (vol. 1 is ready now with the other two volues to follow) entitled
'The Soul Discography'.

Sweet Daddy tells ZigZag that he knows where James Brown used ta' eat in Macon, Georgia and that you can sit in the same booth that the GawdFatha' sat in and order the same meal he used to. Bring that food on!!
We will be dedicating a few of the shows in November to the trip and especially the music that Daddy Fonk and DJZZ grew up with.
RIDE ON, RIDE ON, RIGHT ON!!!
