Friday February 5th

A big game special…a brief history of music at the “big game”…originally formatted like a college halftime, the first few featured marching bands. a bunch of ’em in the 70s starred “Up With People” and an impersonater Elvis Presto was the best they could do in 1989. Michael Jackson was the first major production pop singer in 1993 and rock didn’t appear until ZZ Top in 1997. They weren’t exactly the stars though, the Blues Brothers and James Brown also performed in this one and the grand finale was a mash up of all 3. What Steve Winwood song, repopularized by the Blues Brothers did all the performers do?
