Noted chronic record collector Dante Carfagna will be joining me for another deep look into Chicago’s unmatched output of 1960’s and 70’s funk and soul. I say “unmatched” because as heralded as Detroit and Memphis were for their respective scenes and labels (Motown, Stax, etc.), no other city in the country put out the sheer volume of 45’s and LPs as did the hundreds of labels, big and small and even tiny, as those of Chicago. Dante first appeared on Anesthetic back in 2004 to give listeners an overview of specific funk acts of the day. We branched out to include actual soul a few episodes later. I do know what’s in store for Chapter 11 but I ain’t tellin’. Some of the names will be familiar but the tracks will most likely be fresh to your ears. In passing, Dante did tell me he “has every single ever put out on Curtom…” There’s your hint. Dante has been called the “Indiana Jones of vinyl archeology” and has never failed to deliver on one incredibly enjoyable thirty minutes of radio. Join me and Dante Carfagna for the History of Chicago Funk and Soul (Chapter 11) on Local Anesthetic this Sunday night at 7:30 on XRT.
