    Gina Coleman, IBC and the Misty Blues Music Journey

    Gina Coleman, IBC and the Misty Blues Music Journey

    On this episode, I speak to Gina Coleman, the frontwoman of the blues band Misty Blues! She shares with us their journey to the IBC finals, her love for playing the cigar box guitar, and how blues runs in the family!

    Gina is a graduate of Williams College.  She began singing in 1990 on a dare by her co-workers and hasn’t turned back since.  She began performing in a duet, The Siblings.  Gina shortly started her own duet, Cole-Connection, which blossomed to a five-piece band that allowed her to showcase some of her original music.  Gina has performed in the Williamstown Theater Festival as the lead gospel singer in “A Raisin in the Sun.” She also made several appearances at NYC’s famed Bitter End.  Misty Blues was a featured group at Mass MoCa’s blues festival.  Gina and the band have had the pleasure of performing with Charles Neville from the legendary Neville Brothers at several venues in Western, MA and opening for blues staples ... Tab Benoit, John Primer, Albert Cummings, and Michel Powers.  Musical influences include Janis Joplin, Bessie Smith, Billie Holiday, and Tuck & Patti.

    Hermene Hartman - The Legacy of Chicago's N'DIGO

    Hermene Hartman - The Legacy of Chicago's N'DIGO

    On this episode, I have the honor to speak with activist, publisher, teacher, entrepreneur, and Chicago historian Hermene Hartman.  She shares the beginnings of N'digo Print and walks us through to its current studio and television program! Hartman is a true historian, folklorist and she works tirelessly to platform Chicago the way it should be seen!



    N'DIGO STUDIO is a new talk show, independently produced. It is Chicago-centric and features interviews with notables and newbies. Hermene Hartman and Shannon Peoples are the co-hosts.

    N'DIGO STUDIO brings real talk with African American insights to the discussion. We will talk to the politicos, authors, and hot topics on current social issues, pop culture, and race and roundtable discussion. We will take deep dives in the art of conversation on topics that perhaps miss mainstream media.

    Hermene Hartman has published NDIGO a weekly newspaper for 30 years, in print for 26 and now exclusively online and in email columns. Her media career began as a TV producer with CBS, working with the late Warner Saunders. She was a college professor in the Behavioral Sciences and an administrator at City Colleges. She released a contemporary history book, NDIGO LEGACY: BLACK LUXE 110 in 1997. It is an anthology of African American Chicagoans and includes the first profile on President Barack Obama. Hartman has been a pundit, a voice, on TV news shows to include WGN TV, Fox News, WTTW-TV and The O’Riley Show. Her comments have been provocative and insightful on Chicago's personalities, issues, political races, race and controversial issues of the day.

    Dolphin's Of Hollywood - The John Dolphin Story

    Dolphin's Of Hollywood - The John Dolphin Story

    What does Dolomite, Lawanda Page, Scatman Crothers, Sam Cooke Pee Wee Crayton, T- Bone Walker, Johnny Lee Hooker, Bill Brown, Clyde

    McPhatter, Charlie White, and King Records have in common with Central Avenue? The answer is, John Dolphin and his owner-operated open 24/7 record shop rightfully named "Dolphin's of Hollywood." 

    Bringing Hollywood to Central Avenue, John Dolphin cut records in the back of his store, then broke the record on his radio station that broadcasted in the front window of his store. John's efforts platformed black music and artists who wouldn't have had a chance to be heard on a large level. It also broke the color barriers as his record store had Black, White and Chicano patrons who partied together in and around the record store.

    On this episode, I speak with Michael Dolphin, John Dolphin's son, and Jamelle Dolphin, John Dolphin's grandson and author of the book "Dolphin's of Hollywood" about the legacy and impact John Dolphin created and had on the music, record, radio and Black Business industry. 



    You can also read my article, "Charting The Blues" which is a 9-page feature in Living Blues Magazine, that discusses how John changed the trajectory of the radio industry and pop charts.

    The African American Folklorist Ep 2 - Elijah Cox

    On this episode of The African American Folklorist, I share the story of the born free, African American Traditional Music Practitioner Elijah Cox, who was a fiddler, Buffalo soldier, and recorded in 1935 at the age of 93 for the Library of Congress Elijah Cox was also interviewed and recorded for the Born in Slavery: Slave Narratives from the Federal Writers' Project, 1936-1938, which now lives can be found of the Library Of Congress Website.
