Also this week we lost the Rt Hon Tony Benn, who's long political career included being the only surviving politician to have fought in WWII, sadly he was also the guy that implemented the new pirate radio laws that came into being in 1967, they held UK radio back 50 years in my mind! But still love him or hate him he was a very popular Labour politician and will be missed by many.
The wait is officially over! For those who thought that it would never come to surface, Universal Studios has finally delivered the trailer to the well anticipated James Brown biopic! Titled, Get On Up, the film is filled with an all-star cast that we’re sure will do the story much justice.

Jean Carn Biography:
The three albums Carn recorded for Gamble And Huff's Philadelphia International Records label between 1977 and 1979 are probably her best, and introduced the singer to pop and R&B audiences for the first time. Her hits during this period included "Free Love", "Don't Let It Go To Your Head" and "My Love Don't Come Easy'. She moved to Motown Records for 1983"s Trust Me, which provided her first major singles success with "If You Don't Know Me By Now" and a duet with Bobby Militello on "Let's Stay Together". Carn later found time to contribute to records by Kenny Gamble ("Love Is Beautiful When It's Right") and Stanley Turrentine ("Night Breeze"). Adding an "e' to her last name, she signed a new recording contract with the Atlantic Records imprint Omni and enjoyed immediate success with 1986"s chart-topping R&B hit, "Closer Than Close". Further hits followed in the late 80s, including "Flame Of Love", "Everything Must Change" and "Ain't No Way". Carne carried on recording into the 90s, completing a touching tribute album to the late songwriter Van McCoy. She continues to tour for six months every year, spending the rest of her time at home in Atlanta with her three children.
