News & Notes

 Frank “Scrap Iron” Robinson Passes, Wendell B & A Southern Soul Thanksgiving…

“2020 may be the year you want to put behind you,” I write this month in my 5-star review of Wendell B’s Real Talk, “but before you evacuate, pack a little Wendell B along with your pets, precious papers and memories.” Yes, the end of this weird and grim year will soon be upon us. (If only we could say the same for the pandemic.) And as I write this for deadline, the news is finally in. The presidency has changed hands from Trump to Biden. Only think how much worse 2020 would have been if we hadn’t been blessed with a steady stream of new southern soul singles to transport us beyond the sad scenes unfolding daily around us. Thanks to the hundreds of southern soul recording artists and producers who gave us the tunes that kept us smiling. Thanks for buoying our spirits. Thanks for the musical balm for our masked loneliness.

And by the way, Wendell will be appearing Thanksgiving night (Thursday, November 26, 2020) in Columbus, Mississippi. See Daddy B. Nice’s Concert Calendar.

Frank “Scrap Iron” Robinson, born in Yazoo City, Mississippi in 1951, died on Friday, November 6th, at the age of 69. Robinson was the longtime road manager for the late southern soul star Little Milton,with whom he spent three decades, dressed “to the nines,” touring the chitlin’ circuit. Robinson resided in Memphis. Visitation will be held 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm Friday, November 20, 2020, at N.J. Ford & Sons Funeral Home, 12 South Parkway West in Memphis (901-948-7755). Funeral services will be held at 2:00 pm Saturday, November 21, at Greater Mt. Moriah Baptist Church, 1098 South Wellington St., Memphis, Tennessee.
