Soul Man, first black DJ in the South

If you’re lucky, every once in a while you can catch and tell a little history.

Early Wright, the “Soul Man,” was quite possibly the first black DJ in the South. From WROX in Clarksdale, Miss., Early Wright helped script the history of blues music in the Mississippi Delta.
