Weekdays 6 pm - 12 am ET

Jeff Foxx names "Love Jones" by The Brighter Side of Darkness as his favorite song of all time. His favorite group? Tower Of Power. OK, we get it: he's an aficionado... though Jeff admits he's not super-useful on the dance floor: "I can't dance, can't sing, but I can play a hell of a bass guitar!" Email Jeff

Tanya Simpson

Tanya Simpson
Weekends 6 pm - 12 am ET

As a teenager, Tanya Simpson's portable radio was a constant companion. "I would have big earphones on, singing ALL the lyrics like I wrote them myself." Known for her powerful, provocative voice, Tanya recalls almost losing it at her first Jackson 5 concert, "screaming louder than my older sister!" Email Tanya

Fred Buggs

Fred Buggs
Weekdays 12 pm - 6 pm ET

Fred Buggs still remembers the first time he heard Psychedelic Shack by the Temptations, and their new lead singer Dennis Edwards. He’s a Motown junkie who also is a big fan of other fine groups like the Tops and Kool & the Gang, but always pays r-e-s-p-e-c-t to the ladies of soul like Aretha Franklin, Gladys and Roberta Flack. Check out "Buggsy" and his skills weekday afternoons.
