PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A new internet radio station based here is putting out The Sound of Philadelphia around the world around the clock.
No Classic Rock. No Country. Nothing but the stuff that Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff put to vinyl back in the day that put The Sound of Philadelphia on the map.
Gamble’s nephew, Chuck, is Executive Vice President at Philadelphia International Records and the force behind the new internet operation.
“We are providing music that is not available to anyone else. We’ve got some of the artists and the acts that were recorded years ago that were never released.”
The venture is part celebration for the company’s 40th anniversary and part marketing in that you can instantly buy any tune you hear on line. And yes, there’s an app for that at the station’s website.
Plans are in the works for a Gamble and Huff book, a theatrical play and maybe even a movie or documentary.
