George Clinton Funks Up WCBE's Jazz Sunday
The Mothership landed atop 90.5-FM WCBE's studios around 3pm, December 14, 2008. On that Sunday afternoon, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame legend and founder of Parliament-Funkadelic, George Clinton, took control of the Columbus area public radio station, turning it into Station We-FuNK. Jazz Sunday host, K.C. Jones, and his co-host, Jack Marchbanks, were happy to oblige.
 
Music of 1968: From Fun to Funk, From Hope to Hate
Observers have said that the events of 1968 created a social mess that we're still trying to clean up. 1968 was an earthquake that is still sending aftershocks through America's cultural landscape. A seismic shift rumbled through music in 1968, too. Aretha Franklin ascended to her throne as the Queen of Soul that year. James Brown became Soul Brother Number in the aftermath of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s assassination. The Beatles unwittingly set in motion Charles Manson's murderous mayhem with the inclusion of "Helter Skelter" on their 1968 White Album. The Rolling Stones made a rare but timely political statement with "Street Fightin' Man."
