2nite we celebrate the life and times of singer/musician, Bobby DeBarge. Mr. DeBarge would’ve turned 61 on March 5th and 2nite we’ll pay homage to him. DeBarge is best known for being a member of the Motown act, Switch.
Hour #1: We’ll listen to SMASH – The Roots of Switch and DeBarge. In 1975, DeBarge was in a funk group called “White Heat,” signed by RCA under Barry White‘s production company. Unfortunately, the album was dropped before the release date, but don’t worry, we got you.
Hour #2: We’ll check out DeBarge’s 1987 album,”Bad Boys.” After Bobby’s siblings, Bunny and El left the family act, DeBarge, Bobby joined the lineup along with remaining members, James, Randy, and Marty. Never heard it before? Don’t worry, we got you.
