As I’ve said before, I’m a 70’s baby and I love 80’s music.  This mix features my favorite era in R&B.  While I was a 10 year old eating my Mr. T cereal and watching Miami Vice on Friday nights; my 20 year old Sister was hitting DC clubs and dancing to some of the songs featured on this mix.  While I was never old enough to club in the 80’s myself, I lived vicariously through my big Sister.  She’d show me the latest dances and I’d watch and think, “I just can’t wait to be grown.”  I knew what music was hot by the albums and cassettes my sister would buy.    Those albums are now a major part of my record collection today and those memories are the inspiration behind Clubbin’ in the 80’s.

This mix is my thank you to all of you in the DJ BeTray family.  Thank you for your support as we approach my 1 year anniversary of DJ BeTray.com.  Please enjoy this mix and bump it at your next party! Love!

Unsung, is Must See TV

Unsung is the best music show on television and actually is the only show I’ve consistently watched for the past few years.  If you have ever wondered what happened to your favorite R&B singer or group from the 70’s and 80’s, chances are Unsung has told their story or soon will.  The list of artists it’s featured reads like my website, my favorite episodes so far have been on Donnie Hathaway, Phyllis Hyman, Minnie RipertonDeBarge, Sylvester, Teena Marie, Deniece Williams, Angela WinbushAlexander O’Neal & Cherrelle, and too many more to name.  It is a well written and thought provoking show.  Think VH1’s Behind the Music without the mainstream artists, in other words it won’t be featuring Whitney Houston or Jennifer Lopez.

Catch it every Monday night on TV One.  Here’s the latest episode on Evelyn Champagne King. Love!
