Wilson Pickett

Monday, March 18, 2013 - 7:00pm

They called him "The Wicked One." His type of soul was rough and raw. He started out in church, singing with gospel groups, moved over to R' n 'B with the Falcons and then went solo. With gritty dance floor grooves like "634-5789," "Mustang Sally," and "Funky Broadway," Wilson Pickett established himself as a soul legend. Join host Tom Shaker this Monday at 7pm and hear for yourself!
