Rest in Peace Don Cornelius – Legendary Founder of Soul Train

This video is part 1 of a series (haven’t seen the rest) on Soul Train and serves as a basic introduction to the television show’s 35 year history. This segment focuses mostly on Soul Train’s early, defining years… years when great music was obviously abundant and supported.

I know Soul Train and Don Cornelius will live on for at least another three decades in our DVD players and on the web. That is as long as the “Content Mafia” doesn’t snatch away our right to view this shared cultural history.
