Concert with Meli’sa Morgan/Fonda Rae/Alicia Myers/Marley Marl/Hosted by Bob Lee in association with WBLS
New York soul songstress Meli’sa Morgan’s debut single, a cover of Prince’s hit “Do Me Baby,” shot to the top of the charts and the album of the same name hit the top five. Fonda Rae burst onto the music scene with the song “Deputy of Love,” which climbed to the number one position on the Billboard dance charts. Vocalist Alicia Myers was a charter member of Al Hudson & the Soul Partners, which later became One Way, before she departed in the early 1980s for a solo career. She earned a top-10 hit with “You Get the Best From Me (Say, Say, Say)” in 1984, although her strongest record was the Gospel/Soul album, I Want to Thank You. One of hip-hop’s first super-producers, Marley Marl was an early innovator in the art of sampling. “Doctor” Bob Lee is one of the most recognized entertainment personalities in New York with a 30-year career in radio, music and television.
