‘Gospel Roots of Rock and Soul’ on KRCU
February 22 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
A new radio documentary that explores the history of black gospel music and illustrates its significant influence on the formation of rock and soul music will be broadcast by KRCU Public Radio in February, during Black History Month.
Hosted by GRAMMY award-winning gospel singer CeCe Winans, “Gospel Roots of Rock and Soul” is produced by Philadelphia public radio station WXPN and distributed by NPR. The special will air Fridays at noon, beginning Feb. 1 and continue through the end of the month. A repeat of the show will air Sunday evenings at 6 p.m.
The “Gospel Roots of Rock and Soul” documentary consists of four one-hour segments, and starts with the history and foundation of black gospel from spirituals, and how those songs informed the music of the great gospel quartets.
