#175 | Sly & the Family Stone 101

June is Black Music History Month. Do you know what that means? It means we’re about to take a funky, groovy, romantic, hardcore trip through history. We lift off with the story of a band that reached amazing heights, sometimes while high as a kite. Sly & the Family Stone bridged both the gender and color barriers of the 1960s, becoming one of the most influential bands ever. In this episode, we explore the the genius of Sylvester Stewart, his family, and his friends, who collectively helped define psychedelic soul and funk music.
