Soul What? Soul Train: The 40th Anniversary of the First National Airing of “Soul Train”


It is on October 2nd, a Saturday afternoon forty years ago, a new television dance show entitled “Soul Train” hit the airwaves nationally in four markets (Los Angeles on channel 5 at 1:30PM; Birmingham, AL on channel 6 at 11:30PM; Atlanta on channel 5 at 2:30PM; and Philadelphia on channel 48 at 4PM). Hard to believe that it has been 40 years since then. Check out Gladys Knight and the Pips performing on the first episode.
