DJ Rodriguez is thrilled to be hosting Lew Hopson, in-studio guest this Saturday when we will be treated to what Hopson calls Brand New, Old School Funk, Soul and R&B. Hopson is a man with many hats including singer/songwriter, author/poet, and actor in films and television, to name a few. For those of you who have been long-time listeners to DJ Rodriguez, you may have heard several tracks from Hopson's " When U Pick Up Da Funk" album played on The Grapevine show that aired for many years on KDRT. Lew Hopson grew up in Chicago listening to WVON radio, and was influenced by Curtis Mayfield, James Brown, Smokey Robinson and Etta James. He produced When U Pick Up Da Funk and the more recent Goody Bag albums with his friends at RudeLab Records and remains grateful to our grassroots community station for airing them on several of our shows.
