You’ll be getting one of these daily until the end of house arrest – it reflects my eccentric, life-loving mood during these surreal times.
This is the WBLS Frankie Crocker version. I don’t know how many GR readers remember Frankie Crocker but he had all of New York singing this tune at 8 o’clock every night.
Frankie “Hollywood” Crocker was a disc jockey who helped grow WBLS, the iconic black music radio station in New York in the late twentieth century. He signed off the air each night to the tune “Moody’s Mood For Love” by vocalese crooner King
WBLS-FM broke Blondie, Madonna, Shannon, D Train, all Arthur Baker records, The System, Colonel Abrams, Alicia Myers and supermodel Grace Jones. He made, “Love is the Message” by MFSB NYC’s unofficial anthem on the radio. WBLS airplay made “Ain’t No Stoppin Us Now” by McFadden and Whitehead a favorite cookout, church, wedding and graduation song. “The Magnificent Seven” by the Clash became a hot song in the Black Community. He gave America exposure to an obscure genre called “Reggae” and a little known Jamaican rocker named Bob Marley. Fatback Band frontman Bill Curtis credited Crocker with breaking the group in New York.
