'Gospel Roots of Rock and Soul', hosted by Cece Winans, will air on WNCW-FM 88.7 every Tuesday night in February between 8-9pm.  It is a four-part documentary series illustrating the influence of Black Gospel on early rock and soul music. The hour examines the history and foundation of Black gospel from spirituals and how those songs informed the gospel music of the great gospel quartets including The Dixie Hummingbirds, The Pilgrim Travelers, The Golden Gates, The Caravans, and The Soul Stirrers featuring Sam Cooke.
