  1. Having trouble on WordPress. Ok. Loved the segment today. Especially Stevie Wonder. While reading up on him, I discovered he sang at the funerals of Michael Jackson (also enjoyed on your show), Whitney Houston and the late, great Etta James. That led me somehow to New Orleans legend Allen Toussaint. Which led me to….. Manchester’s own, John Mayall. God! Where has this man been all my life? Toussaint wrote some of his songs on his 1976 album, Notice To Appear, in particular, “Mess of Love”. You can hear some New Orleans jazz and blues influences throughout the album.
    So, bravo, Paul for this episode! I love how the Connections program makes one think, research, and make their own personal connections :-)))…

    • I’m really pleased you got a chance to listen to it, thank you! Stevie Wonder is pure class and so is Allan Toussaint; I shall be mentioning him at some point along with Dr John, Ry Cooder and Van Dyke Parks. John Mayall was a hub that many passed through much like Graham Bond in the 50/60s. Thank again Marty 🙂
