Long before there was Disco, long before there was Hip Hop, there was the television program Soul Train with host Don Cornelius. We would be remiss if we did not mention his death earlier today of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. Full details including video from Los Angeles station KTLA. I can recall a large group of girls from my grade school class in Chicago skipping school to appear on local dance TV show Kiddie-A-GoGo featuring Cornelius, a show he would ultimately take national and world-wide as Soul Train. The show would stay in syndication for 35 years! Love, Peace and Soul to Don Cornelius.
