Happy 40th Soul Train

It is Saturday morning, and I know many of my fellow Americans, of a certain age, regardless of race, share the same memory of Saturday morning cartoons and the show that marked the end of those cartoons. Soul Train. Born in Chicago in August of 1970 and later syndicated in 1971, Soul Train soon laid its tracks down across the country becoming known as the hippest trip in America” (does that line always come out in Don Cornelius’ voice in your head too?). Although the last original episode was broadcast in 2006, we can still take a ride on the Soul Train courtesy of YouTube and Centric. As always, we wish you love, peace, and SOUL!
