Soul Train,” one of the longest-running syndicated shows in television history. The show gave exposure to  new aspiring artists, such as the late Great James Brown and Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin!

“ ‘Soul Train’ was developed as a radio show on television,” Mr. Cornelius told The New York Times in 1995. “It was the radio show that I always wanted and never had. I selected the music, and still do, by simply seeing what had chart success.”
