Found Gems Ep 11: R&B Crossover Artists

Top 40 radio in the 60s and 70s was a place where you could here a variety of styles and genres. Mostly, it was white rock and roll artists. But sometime there would be crossover from from other genres. For episode 11 of our tribute to the deep track in the middle of the record Found Gems we study the crossover effect into Top 40 by R&B. These are artists who had singles in both the pop and R&B charts. They’re all the names you’re familiar with but maybe didn’t purchase the record. Hook up your scuba gear as we explore the deep end of the album where the rare fish play.
