Favorite Noise: Teddy Pendergrass (R.I.P.)


Grown folks music, right here.

Pendergrass was just one of the artists you had to know from parent’s LP collections. Its funny how songs you learned as a kid while running around at barbecues, being toted around in carpools to church, at the barber shop or playing in the background while the family did chores become so much a part of you.

Note: I went out last night, here in Philadelphia, and I didn’t hear any Pendergrass or Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes songs (let alone sets) by any of the DJs. Pretty shameful. I won’t repeat that mistake. Teddy P posts all weekend.
