Last but not least we offered a spotlight on MANU DIBANGO here on 'THE GROOVE' which was aired on Saturday February 23rd, 2019 . Here is part of the introductory notes from that playllist:
"When JOSEPH "LE GRANDE KALLE" KABASELE welcomed the Cameroonian multi-instrumentalist MANU DIBANGO into the legendary band AFRICAN JAZZ he sensed that this talented and well trained musician would become important. He encouraged MANU DIBANGO's ambitions to experiment with combining Congolese music with Funk and Soul just as almost everybody else was doing the same with Latin and French Caribbean musical styles. MANU DIBANGO opened his own club that was called The TAM TAM. His productions during the 1960's and early 1970's proceeded to change the course of popular music. His impact on the development of different genres of discotheque music has been monumental.
No other single artist has provided a direct connection between the richly musical passions of the Congolese Rumba "belle epoque" and the explosive "disco boom" that dominated the 1970's. The very impact of his experiments in the 1960's and 1970's are still being felt today! We've attempted to give you as many examples we can fit in:
First and foremost there was his early "Hallelouia" 7" single combining Rumba with the wildly popular (in the discotheques at the time) Twist first introduced by American R&B singer CHUBBY CHECKER. Beyond its controversy it is demanding and endearing. DJs are still spinning in; if they're fortunate enough to find it! Italian dj Luis Soulful Torino wrote "Whenever I play it, in Italian clubs, around Europe and even at wedding parties, the crowd goes crazy. What a record!"
Numerous funky MANU DIBANGO records in the 1960's and early 1970's became popular in discos in France and Italy like "Dikalo", "Afro-Soul" and "Soul Machine". His early albums like 'Saxy-Party' from 1969 and 'Africadelic' from 1973 were vital parts of the collections of thousands of European and Nigerian discotheques.
The impact of DIBANGO'S 1972 song "Soul Makossa" is also still being felt around the planet. The fact of the matter is that no other recording has had so much influence on the development of discotheque music. It radically altered the atmosphere of the industry in the early 1970's while it slowly became one of the most popular discotheque standards. As early as 1974 other artists began to record cover versions and by the early 1990's there were countless samples and musical allusions: tributes to a gem that has entered the consciousness of billions! The most popular and notable of which is by the late MICHAEL JACKSON with "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin" from the 'Thriller' album."

Another CKCU show that featured an even earlier recording of KRAFTWERK was JOHN WESTHAVER'S legendary 'FRIDAY MORNING CARTUNES' show which ended with an extended recording of KRAFTWERK from the group's very beginnings with they experimented with HEAVY METAL music! Here is the link for that show:
