Funk

Today is the birthdate of Isaac Funk who with Adam Wagnalls gave us Funk & Wagnalls dictionary and encyclopedia. Tragically Funk died in 1912, well before he could get down to the music that would bear his name. By way of historical revisionism, we honor the man (who never went to Funkytown) with your requests after 9 a.m.

Here's what we played:

Positive Force "We Got the Funk"
 
James Brown "Get on the Good Foot"
 
Billy Preston "Outa-Space"
 
Rick James "Give It to Me Baby"
