01 Feb Bubba Knight’s Story: Through the Eyes of a Pip
It’s not every day that artists who are iconic figures in American popular music sit down with public radio producers to lay out the complete trajectory of their life's work. But that's exactly what Bubba (Merald) Knight, the founding member of Gladys Knight and the Pips and older brother to Gladys has done, with Bubba Knight’s Story: Through the Eyes of a Pip.
Sharing hard-won lessons and experiences that enrich others understanding of the world, is an act of love. Bubba Knight takes us on a musical journey, starting from a childhood in the segregated south with sister, Gladys influenced by the music of the church and popular music of the 1950’s and 60’s – and a mother who spotted and nurtured their talent. Bubba offers a window into the complexities of working in the recording industry, as well as the people along the way who aided their success.
Bubba Knight’s Story: Through the Eyes of a Pip is filled with music that was embedded in the soundtrack of America from the 60’s through the 80’s. Underneath it all, this is a story about family, and what can be accomplished when everyone pulls together.
Bubba Knight’s Story: Through the Eyes of a Pip was produced at KCEP-FM in Las Vegas and Duke Markos Audio in NYC.
