James Brown wasn't just the Minister of the New New Super Heavy Funk and the Godfather of Soul. He was the hardest working man in show business, and a complex character to boot. RJ Smith profiles the legend of popular music in an extensive biography, The One: The Life and Music of James Brown. Plus, comedian Cameron Esposito muses on her childhood appearance and summer music recommendations from The Low Times podcast.

With regards to The Outshot, there was a very interesting show on Radio 4 today, an appreciation of Cheers presented by Stephen Merchant. It's up on the iPlayer for the next 7 days (though I don't know if it's available outside the UK...)

Hold. On. The Bambaataa/Brown collab Unity is truly amazing. JUST LISTEN TO THE A CAPELLA CLOSING TRACK. Sorry, those all caps were necessary.

So deal.

I loved Louis Jordan when I was a kid! I never thought about the connection between him and Little Richard and James Brown. CaledonYAH. Great interview. Now I'm going to go listen to some James Brown.

This reminds me of my mom and dad's story of sitting next to Little Richard while waiting for an airplane. I don't think they talked to him but they saw him take a $100 bill out of his boot.
