Re: electrifying mojo : need mix

He was a radio jock who crafted that radio personality and won over the legion of young Detrioters by addressing them directly, as "members" and do things like tell them to all cruise up and down a certain street in caravan style, flashing their lights etc.

He was crucial to his listeners especially to those with musical inclinations as a manufacturer of taste, playing disparate works and music of all kinds as long as it was GOOD and GROOVIN' - much like the CBS did for so many people here.

"Will the members of the Midnight Funk Association please rise. Please go to your porch light and turn it on for the next hour to show us your solidarity. If you're in your car please honk your horn and flash your lights, wherever you are. If you're in bed, get ready to dance on your back, in Technicolor. And get ready for the MFA. The word is... Don't say no, say triple-whammy-whoa. Hold on tight, don't let go. Whenever you feel like you're nearing the end of your rope, don't slide off. Tie a knot. Keep hanging, keep remembering, that it ain't nobody bad like you. This session of the International Midnight Funk Association is being called to order. Electrifying Mojo presiding. May the Funk be with you. Always..."

Classic radio. smile

So yeah, he was quite a character and even wrote a kooky book "The Mental Machine" (go figure!) that's over 500 pages of poetry, and short essays (on topics such as survival tips for seniors, and fatherless children).

Re: electrifying mojo : need mix

Indeed it's very difficult to find more than 5 minutes. I'd probably try to ask on littledetroit.net or find a Detroit general user forum where some of the users who grew up listening to Mojo might still have cassettes of the broadcasts.

Re: electrifying mojo : need mix

great clip, what an amazing voice!!!!!

Re: electrifying mojo : need mix

there was a cbs jingle of him ranting his "don't call me a disk jockey, I am a human radio station".

Re: electrifying mojo : need mix

Funny cause he would start his show from the point of view of an extraterrestrial being descending upon Detroit and describe the sights he'd see as he was landing, landmarks, hookers, etc. A man of many mysteries and paradoxes for sure.

keep hackney crap

Re: electrifying mojo : need mix

Byron, I frankly always thought so from the day I first heard it, but then again I never checked (if there was a way to check). Listening now to the youtube clips and looks like I was wrong.

A big Oops is due to all 'bots misled by my remark.

Edit: who is then in that "Human-radiostation" jingle in that case, I wonder?

Re: electrifying mojo : need mix

Re: electrifying mojo : need mix

I used to have a few shows, including the infamous Prince interview but I've no idea where they are? I've got the Mental Machine on two CDr thanks to teep. If I get some free time I'll put them on Sendspace.
