Silhouette Segments compiles radio spots by John Rydgren, the head of the American Lutheran Church . His radio show, “Silhouettes”, was the voice of hippies for God before anyone ever heard the word, “Jesus freak”. His psychedelic Christian Dj patter, in the style of Ken Nordine, is backed by fuzzy guitars and Summer Of Love grooves. A heady mix of peace, love, sex & Jesus. This and 100 other rare and unusual records from the LP Cover Lover archives are being put up for auction on eBay beginning on Monday, April 13th!

FAT DADDY presents greatest oldies from the kingdom.
Baltimore. The 1960’s. 6:00 AM. Anywhere near a radio and WINN. Paul “Fat Daddy” Johnson, the “300-pound King of Soul” speaks soul jive, his outrageous monologues roll forth with gospel-like fervor.” “Hear me now,” he hisses into the mike. “Up from the very soul of breathing. Up from the orange crates. From the ghetto through the suburban areas comes your leader of rhythm and blues, the expected one – Fat Daddy, the soul boss with the hot sauce. Built for comfort, not for speed. Everyone loves a fat man! The Fat Daddy show is guaranteed to satisfy momma. I’m gonna go way out on a limb on this one, Baltimore. Fat poppa, show stoppa.”
Ringing bells give way to several pulses of the organ followed by the recorded voice of a young girl saying, “lay it on me, Fat Daddy, lay it on me.”
“Fat Daddy, your king, and I’ve got soul for you. This is for all the foxes wakin’ up this morning. Here’s a soul kiss for ya, mmmmmmmmh! From the lips of the high priest, from the depth of a fat man’s soul…”
Fat Daddy was only 40 when he died in Los Angeles in 1978. Esquire, Cashbox, and Billboard have acclaimed him as one of the top five R&B disc jockeys in America, while Record World magazine called him simply the No. 1 soul man in the nation.
