Pop Culture Capsule — 1974 Billboard Magazine Soul Train Spotlight

1974 Billboard Magazine Soul Train Spotlight (Don Cornelius)

Tributes to the late Don Cornelius have been filling the internet since the news broke of his death earlier this week. There’s nothing of substance I can add to the legacy of Cornelius and his beloved creation, Soul Train, so instead I’ll offer up this 1974 tribute from Billboard magazine.

This spotlight combines a history of the show, then celebrating its third year on the air, with tribute ads from well-known soul and R&B artists, as well as plenty of cool pictures.
