Being a true music lover, it would be impossible to represent real music without showing love to the old school artists that paved the way! I am a 70's baby, so I had the opportunity to grow up listening to all types of music in my household! Growing up in Detroit during the Motown era, I was able to hear plenty from acts like The Temptations, Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross, Smokie Robinson, etc. Jackie Wilson and Nina Simone were two of my father's favorite artists, so I knew all of their songs like the drive-thru menu at McDonald's! As the years went on, I found myself enjoying music more than I could ever know! Recording songs from the radio was an early hobbie, and I never left the house without my trusty walkman! Music was just music at that point in my life! Then I looked a music differently in 1983, when the Mary Jane Girls jumped on the scene! My life was changed forever! When I saw the "In My House" video on Video Soul (BET) for the first time, I was infatuated with these women. Other groups were pretty sexy too (Vanity 6, Klymaxx), but no one did it like the Mary Jane Girls! Cheri (Cheryl Ann Bailey) and Corvette (Yvette Marine) were my favorite members over their years in the music industry! Enuff said....

I will occasionally post a downloadable mix of old school music on this site, based on what I am listening too at the time! Today's mix will be representing the sexy old school female artists from the 80's that made a difference in my life over the years! I'll call this mix, "Sexy Ladies of the 80's!"
