From the Soundboard is a program that usually focuses on concerts regardless of genre. This is where the artist and (or) group perfect the art of the call and response with its audience.  On Tuesday, June 22 starting @ midnight (that’s Monday into Tuesday), we continue to celebrate African-American Music Appreciation Month (Black Music Month) by focusing on the Smooth Soulful West Coast Sounds from the legendary Soul vocal group from Los Angeles.  They are the Whispers.

One of R&B music’s most beloved and consistently popular vocal groups, The Whispers, began their legendary and timeless career in 1963. Twin brothers Walter and Wallace Scott joined with friends Nicholas Caldwell, Marcus Hutson, and Gordy Harmon to form a local singing group. They perfected their tight harmonies on the street corners in the Watts section of Los Angeles and in nightclubs in the San Francisco/Oakland Bay Area.
