Smokey at the Greek

It was 1981 when I was working in Top 40 radio in New Orleans, La and that radio format was burning up the air waves back then.

     Radio programmers didn't care whether the music was popular, country, rock or R&B, if listeners requested it enough and were buying the record. It made their rotation.

     This is where I have to bring up Smokey Robinson.

     Robinson was burning up the radio airwaves moving from R&B to pop. William "Smokey" Robinson, Jr. was experiencing hits like; "Cruisin'" (1979), "Being With You" (1981) and "Just to See Her" (1987).

Robinson is a former Motown record executive and songwriter.

     I think this explains his longevity in the music business.  

     He and Berry Gordy took that company, I'll bet beyond their expectations.

      Yeah. Diana Ross they did. (LOL)

      Robinson was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987.

      Enjoy Smokey every body, this August 16th weekend at the Greek Theatre.
