Upon further investigation

On the other hand. . . .

I was intrigued by this Upbeat show, so I did a little investigating on the Internets. Originated at WEWS, Channel 5 in Cleveland. Ran from 1964 to 1971 and was hosted by Don Webster, who it seems is a legend in the rock 'n' roll city.

AND THE ACTS Upbeat featured. . . . Oh, my goodness. Upbeat, as a matter of fact, was Otis Redding's last TV appearance before his death in a plane crash.

I think I'm an Upbeat fan now. All hail Don Webster!

And I am sure The Funkadelic is of a like mind. The Funkadelic. Has a ring to it.
