Elwood welcomes Candi Staton, gospel singer turned soul singer, disco diva, and everything in between, and beyond. Her latest release, LIFE HAPPENS, was recorded at the legendary Muscle Shoals studios. She talks with Elwood about all that, inspiring him to spin some other Muscle Shoals soul alums, including Arthur Conley, Wilson Pickett, Clarence Carter, and Percy Sledge. Also, Candi’s mentor Ray Charles will be played. Plus new music from Oakland, California – r&b phenom, Fantastic Negrito.
