Four Decades of Soul Train

Hosted by

The funky TV show Soul Train was one of the longest syndicated shows ever created. It lasted from 1971 to 2006. It was the brainchild of Don Cornelius, who became TV royalty as Soul Train rode to the upper echelons of TV. We talk to the author of a new book that chronicles the show and how it became so successful.
