TVC 625.3: Ed welcomes singer and dancer Shelly Clark, one of the founding members of Honey Cone, the legendary R&B and soul girl group from the late 1960s and early 1970s that was also the premier female group for Hot Wax Records, the label operated by the famed writing team Holland-Dozier-Holland. Honey Cone was also the very first act to appear on the debut episode of Soul Train in 1971, performing two of their hits, “Want Ads” and “Stick Up.” Shelly talks to Ed about the significance of appearing on Soul Train. She also explains how she was working as a regular on The Jim Nabors Hour (CBS, 1969-1971) at the time “Want Ads” became a big hit, and how she had to hire her own replacement on the Nabors show so that she could tour nationally with Honey Cone.
